Rim Bolts Question NC Grade 5 vs NF?

Postby PVF1799 » Thu Aug 15, 2013 8:55 pm

Somewhere along the way the squared head 1/2 x 1.75" NF bolts got replaced with hex head bolts. Here is my question. I can buy a Sq. hd. zinc bolt 1/2 x 2 NC Grade 5. As the original was NF for torque reasons - would it be acceptable to use this substitute bolt in NC because it's Grade 5?

I can get them from McMaster Carr for $3.03 each.

I'm advised IH genuine at $14 and JD's are $5-6 each.

I get mine from the Deere dealer. I might have the part number in the shop. If you want I'll pick some up for you.

Thanks Cecil et al, for the advice. Cecil, it would be awesome if you could pick-up 8 with nuts.

John Deere part number is 08h4465.

Barnyard has the number. I have a couple of packs in the Cubhouse.

I don't know if you had posted it, but I found this number about a year ago. It may have been from one of your posts at one time.

On a technical basis, the NF at a given torque clamps tighter than does a NC at the same torque. In theory, and probably in practice most of the time, some higher torque value applied to the NC will result in the same clamping force. I suspect that the original specification was chosen carefully.
