You can take an old screw, bolt or stud to Home Depo or Lowes and match them up with new hardware.

My Depo store has a thread reference tool that is located in the hardware department. Bring in an old bolt and test a few threads and locate the one you need. The tool is marked to show the thread type and thread diameter.

I had a few old Altec 802s recently that had busted studs, cross-threaded threads and buggered bolts. My small set of threaded taps and dies was very useful for fixing these issues. You can buy a set of inexpensive taps and dies at www.HarborFreight.com (http://www.HarborFreight.com).

Many thanksYour best bet is to contact Great Plains Audio. They will most likely have all of the parts you need. I assume they will ship internationally.

Isnít there a tool that can make a threading on screws?

A die. With a good die and a wrench you can turn bar stock into a screw.

Although I have a tap and die set I rarely find myself manufacturing my own screws, even at the overpriced hardware store down the street it just seems a bargain to buy what I need.;)
Probably easiest to source it all from GPA, maybe get some gaskets as well to round out the order.

You could try a Jeep, Dodge, or Harley repair shop.
