That may be, David.  I agree that ¼” seems a bit short, but the chart where I got the length is headed “Length inch” and the value is given as ¼.    I tried to remove one of them from my car to verify the length, but clearance it too tight to get a good grip because of the rear seat back frame.

The last number is the length in 8ths not 16ths   So it would be 4/8 in length.

The BMC parts manual for BJ7/BJ8 says it is an MTZ604 screw --  #6, self-tapping, zinc plated, ¼” long.  10 required.

Sorry to have to ask - but I've looked in all the places I can think of (Anderson & Moment / fasters.xls, and even being on the phone with Moss motors for far too long)....


Can anyone tell me what the type of screw is for fastening the rear trim rail (the one that is used for clipping the bottom of the top) to the body?


Thanks in advance,
