Hey gents, I need to replace a banjo bolt on the engine during a rebuild. It is part T1210242. A local shop told me it is an M6x20 banjo bolt that can be purchased at any fastener shop. Reason I am driven to that is it is a $10 part and it would be $20 to ship it to me.

Can anyone confirm these can just be bought generically? Further question - has anyone replaced their carb boot clamps, if so, with what?

Cheers!

If I were in your position, I'd certainly buy the generic part. You'll know soon enough if it doesn't work, but I don't see how it couldn't if it's the right size. It's only a banjo bolt, not some exotic part.

You could source your own, look for clamps with a 50-70 mm diameter range and 9 mm wide, preferably in stainless steel. It's a standard size.

Heed the advice of @PieMan in post 2 of this thread as regards tightening:

Mine are about 10 years old so was looking at replacing them simply as a safety precaution while I had them off. Is this necessary?

If you mean the clamps, no. What would be wrong with them?

Where exactly is this banjo bolt located? I've never heard of a M6 size banjo bolt.
There are 4 M6x20 Banjo bolts altogether.

We've got two of them under the cam cover. They're used on the oil feed to the cams, see items 9:



Another two are on a small pipe linking the oil pumps, items 10 here:
