    Ok I know I read it somewhere on here but just can`t seem to find it.

    I want remove the outer cam sensor cover the one with rivets and replace them with screws, I know you use a 3/8 inch bit to take the rivets out,But what size self tapping screws do I use to put the cover backs on or should I just get the stock rivets and use them.

    I really enjoy reading this site ,I have learned a lot,Keep it up Brothers!

    A quick trip out to the garage shows the screws in my '92 cover to be 8-32. :)
    Oops, I didn't measure, but length is about 1". I have a custom cast cover that may be thicker than sock.

    The 3/8" drill is used just to cut the heads off the stock rivets so the cover can be removed.
