Question Somebody please tell me the Banjo bolt size for a TD04H-15G Turbo

I've been trying to get the fittings together so I can install my turbo, but cant seem to find any answers to this. As I understand, this turbo came with different size oil feed holes. Jim at the GPOPSHOP sent me one for FREE along with my rebuild kit, but it was the wrong size. Too big. By the way, they have the best customer service ever. Jim is super cool. Anyways, thats the only thing really holding me back. I know Begi sales a fitting, but its $12 or better plus shipping. Dont want to order it and it not be the right fitting. Any suggestions on how to find out which fitting to get? I'm open to ideas. Thanks in advance.

it's m10 by 1.xx, I promise.

honestly, grab a couple bolts out of your tool box (assuming you have some) and lightly thread them in, obviously not forcing them if they don't glide in. Once one fits, bring it to the hardware store, they almost all have a little board with nuts in them and labels under the nuts. Copy and paste the label under the nut it fits in into a google search box, and type 'banjo bolt' afterwords, hopefully you can find what you need from there.

BTW, this method works great for everything thread related.

and possibly ask them if they have one for sale, they normally have a lil shelf in back with stuff like this.

That'd be awesome, I had to run all over town to four stores before finally finding one after I torqued the head off mine. Of course I was an idiot and only bought one $4 easily breakable part, buy two.

Found out what size bolt I need. Its 10 x 1.25 Thread Pitch. Went to AN PLUMBING.COM Earls performance products Hose ends Hose,Adapter fittings and found it, but they want like $10 for shipping? Anyone out there have a Banjo that size they can sale me? Not trying to be cheap, but $10 for shipping on a bolt that weighs less than a lb. is a little over the top I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.
