    Anyone know where I might be able to get the original screws that hold the spark plug wire covers on a mid 50's Dodge Hemi motor. E-mail me @ bmaio54@aol.com or Message me here on the HAMB.

    Those covers are the first thing to go on my Hemi's but I will keep this thread marked to tell people that buy mine where they can get them. I never paid that much attention but I thought they are just countersunk pan head machine screws. I would think any good hardware store would have them.

    Im looking too....I bought some from a hardware store but not exactly the same, but will work
     
  8. they have a unusually fine thread. its not a normal thread. with the extra fine thread its much easier to lash the valves.

    I think that you are thinking of rocker arm adjusting screws.

    The OP is looking for the screws that hold the spark plug wire/boot/tube covers don onto the valve covers.
     
  11. I should have read more.

    If your anywhere near San Diego... Marshalls Hardware is AMAZING! I have found virtually every lost fastener that I have needed there...

    DSCF8163.JPG Sure look a lot like Model A Ford dash rail screws, I'll check the threads on the ones I have. OK, Snyders sells them, part number is #20 1930-31 dashboard screws. I checked them with my 354 and they fit fine even if they are a bit shorter than the stock screws. Bob DSCF8164.JPG

    Hondo sells original hemi screws.
     
  21. You guys make it harder than it should be. I found the exact screws in stainless for my Desoto hemi at either Home Depot or Lowes. A lot cheaper than the people who advertise them are asking.
