        I'm watching that too. Someone here ordered one last week so I'm waiting to see if the thread pitch/length is ok and if so would assume it's good. Not sure what the other critical measurement are tbh, someone (the famous Percy?) may be able to shed more light?

          It wouldn't take 2 mins to whip up a few on a cnc m/c, so it could be a lad doin that and then selling them on!! I might do it myself as a little earner lol

            I think you can all thank me for the oil bolts being this cheap

            Everyone used them sell them at £17+ until I listed them on ebay at £12 delivered and now all the prices have dropped

                Yes - deffo worth it on a standard car.

                I'd look at a different one to that, a 5mm allen key (in my opinion) wouldn't be strong enough to torque the bolt up enough to seal it properly.

                The standard torq bit is a lot more manly and strong than a 5mm allen bolt would ever be.

                  Do these come with teh copper washers as you will need two new ones when fitting ???

                  BTW just for the record - the originals were Percy's and the cheapest so far I believe are Ateeur's
