Mikuni metric threads??
« on: March 28, 2018, 09:48:31 AM »
So Im drilling and taping a old mikuni round slide to accommodate a idle/slide stop screw. Im getting 6 x .75mm thread for the mikuni screw that I will be using. Can anyone confirm the size or at least confirm that the threads used in Mikuni carbs are metric??...Thanks!

Just pulled one out of a VM32 and that is the thread. 6 x .75mm

Metric but not the same as common fasteners. A lot of their stuff is listed as ISO type which is what the dot on the head indicates

I thought the dot on the head indicated that they are a JIS slot, not philips?
