It is the time of the year when I have to do some housekeeping and cleanup.
I have to change oil, flush the coolant & add new coolant clean the air filter etc.
I noticed that the bolts that hold the wheels in, the screws for the battery cover, the screws on the turn signal covers all are rusted and I know I cleaned all of them (soaked it in rust remover solution, wire brushed them clean and then dipped them with some WD40 or some oil lubricant before putting them back on last October. Now almost a year later they are rusted again and especially on the turn signal plastic covers there is a stain. I can do the same again and it shall be fine for a few months possibly, or replace them.
So the question for the wizards on the forum is are there stainless steel screws and bolts that I can order from McMaster Carr. I had ordered and replaced the bolts for the belt and clutch cover with stainless steel bolts a while back.
I did not search but I wonder if there is a thread that lists the screw/bolt sizes for the Vespa GTS.
I also have to figure out how to remove the 3 screws that hold the water pump up, two of the screw heads are stripped. I have been changing the coolant by removing the hose as I had replaced the one time clamp with stainless hose clamps from home depot.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
