    So the Jaguar bolts I ordered from "E-Type Parts Ltd" arrived today (p/no C19827); they have the correct shoulder, 3/8 UNF thread etc. Guess what grade they are?

    "S" - roughly 8.8..

    I don't want to put another downer on your build.
    I'm in the process of putting my cob back together at the moment and had a look at my bolts which I purchased as the correct item back in 2011. The head is marked "T" According to my old 1970s BMC coding I recall "R" was a low strength bolt 45 Ton? , "S" was 50 Ton Tensile and "T" was 75 Ton Tensile. My view is they were clearly a stronger Bolt for a reason and chances are you have far more HP than any Jag of the time. Sorry!

    I called Ben btw.. he told me to go to Jaguar as there's no money in it for him - £5 each from Jaguar.

    You'd hope a specialist supplier would be supplying something fit for purpose, but not always I suppose. Not that I can get the prop in anyway, so I guess it's a moot point! I'll order some from Jaguar Classic Parts division - only available in sets of 5 (I guess I'll have a spare) at £6+VAT each.

    I think I'd be inclined to ask what's stamped on the head before parting with £36.00 plus the postage for 5 small bolts.

    Hope you manage to sort it.

    I can now tell you the answer to that.. what's stamped on the head of genuine Jaguar bolts in genuine Jaguar packaging from genuine Jaguar?

    Nothing at all. They are machined smooth.




    [edit] Actually looking at that photo, I should probably say "ground smooth" given the straight-line marks on them

    After your findings I am inspecting every nut and bolt for markings when I dismantle any part. A major are stamped . How do you know what you have with no stamp. It seems they are neglecting the approval. I would expect this from none U.K. supplied parts.

    To be fair, the stampings aren't really worth a jot unless you also get a certificate of conformity with your order of bolts .. which nobody does (outside of industry where such things are important) - we all operate entirely on trust that the Chinese factory spitting these things out is really making them to grade and not out of best quality Chineseum alloy..

    At least the Jag ones say "made in the UK" on the packet - I assume that means they come with the built-in British Leyland rust?
