Early babe bee #5-40 x 1/2" truss head slotted screws

Post  Jason_WI on Fri Dec 04, 2015 12:57 am

Found some #5-40 x 1/2" long truss head slotted screws on eBay. Hopefully being just .080" longer than the original screws that they don't bottom out in the crankshaft of the early babe bees. I have a bunch that are missing these or they are damaged. Not zinc plated but being SS they wont rust. Every other place that had #5-40 truss head screws they were all Phillips head style.

Nice! You don't see 5x40 screws with truss heads too much. I found a box of 5-40 1/2" slotted round head screws at a local hardware store some years ago. Sadly, the hardware store closed early last year after 81 years. I didn't have any trouble with them bottoming out in any engines.

Got the screws today and other than the slightly longer length they are hard to tell from the original ones. I tried them in 3 piece piston early babe bees all the way to pre Estes babe bees. None bottomed out with a thin wood zinger prop.
