Tried to get the screws off the cover of the clutch master cylinder so I could bleed the clutch and the Phillips head screw stripped out. Not the threads, the Phillips head part.

I was thinking of taking my dremel and cutting a slot in the head to fit a straight screwdriver in to get it out.

My question is, What size screw is this?? I know it would be metric and I have no clue on metric sizes. And does anyone thing a Stainless Steel screw would be ok to put back in?

Drill out the head of the screws only so you can lift the cover off. Visegrip pliers should be able to remove the screws. I think they are a # 5 or 6. I will check tommorow when I get to my shop as I have a 1200 on the lift right now. Hopefully someone hear on site can answer you back quicker.:action:

Thanks Bob,

I was headed to Lowes to see what they have, if not hit my local hardware store in the morning.

Thanks again

If there's any evidence of corrosion on the threads you might want to run a tap in to chase the threads and use a bit of an anti-seize compound on the threads to prevent the new screws from locking up due to corrosion in the future... I use NAPA pt# 765-1151, the 1lb can. It's a bit expensive but the can'll last forever and prevent aLOT of future problems....
