Hi All,
has anyone had to locate a source for the large headed screw that connects the Trunnions on the Duetto convertible top side frames to the header? I’m pretty sure I know what the answer is going to be but thought it was worth a try to ask.
thanks for looking!
Mark

Check out Autoricambi they are a Fiat parts shop Look under the early 124 Spider under convertible top section They have 3 or 4 different type of trunnion screws that may work for what you need

great! i just ordered one of the fasteners that Autoricambi sells, from the tip STPHRS gave me. i'm not exactly sure it will work (as they didn't know how long the fastener is, and couldn't get eyes on one), but if it doesn't fit i'll give you a shout. i'm not worried about how it looks of course, as it's covered by the top, but i want to make sure it'll do the job correctly so as to not cause a crack in one of those aluminum side rails.
thanks for replying.

FYI-I just checked the dimensions of the autoricambi and they are not the correct dimensions. I would contact VeloceSA. I'm having a friend /machinist make some for me.

And you can get them in stainless steel and they never show anyway. I put in a TimeSert and some antiseize.
Brian will tell you how many, many hours I spent getting this area of the convertible top in working condition again post seized hardware. Luckily I did not break anything.
