Default Cam pulley bolts?

Can anyone help me with the specs of the bolts which hold the cam pulleys to the camshafts? I'd like to replace mine with stainless steel or aluminium/titanium versions.

..Why? I hope you don't just plan to go to the local parts store and buy a bolt and slap it on.

No, that's why I was asking the specs, thread, length, grade etc.

But again I ask, why? Not trying to be a smart ***, but what will you accomplish?

My cam pulleys are uncovered. The stock bolts look tatty but, more importantly, I can not get the washer they sit on to locate centrally and it makes the pulleys look as if they are wobbling when the engine is running. Stainless steel or titanium bolts with a shoulder or tighter fitting washer would look better and not 'wobble'.

I can mail you an extra set, but i don't have the tools to figure out what the thread pitch is. Why not take one of them out and run down to a hardware store and compare? Thats what i generally do.

You are quite right. I am installing an ATI damper in two weeks time - so I'll be able to pull the bolts then. I was hoping to obtain the bolt specs earlier than that so that I could just swap them over at that point.

Edit: Actually I've just had them mailed to me.Now to try and find something in stainless steel or titanium.

They are M10x1.25. 35mm long. 8 stamped on the head - so grade 8.8

I have put up links to the actual bolts and the washers I used on my website now.
