Reserve coolant tank, screw threading?

Does anyone know what the threading is for the screw used on the coolant overflow tank? The screw is part 8000B2745. Apparently I've lost mine and paying nearly $20 after delivery and special ordering from overseas is kind of ridiculous. Would be easier to just try and find one at the hardware store.

Update: esq'z me was right on the money. It is M10x1.25

You mean the mounting bolt that attaches it to the frame?

Standard ISO threads.

6x1.0 or 8x1.25 I'm not sure which. Measure the thread diameter. I think you can buy one at the local hardware store

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

If you look in the back of the parts manual it will give you the size......

Sorry no, that part number is the screw used for filling the tank with coolant. I am guessing it's an M8.

I will check. I hate asking questions that have been answered already here and I do try to search. Usually for parts very specific like this I check out Star Twin's site since they list the specific metric size of various parts, but for this one they did not.

Looking at the parts diagram, the washer that goes with that plug (bolt) it is a 10 mm diameter.

Not really sure why that plug is even used in the expansion tank since you fill it through the cap.

Anyway, I would guess it is a 10 x 1.25 and probably about 12 mm or less in length.
