I bought an old unisaw and I’m running through cleaning it up and I noticed that the bolt holding the motor to the mount is incorrectly sized. I have the pin, but the other side is a bolt that threads through the mount into the casting there. It is part 31 on e-replacement parts and they are calling it a “cap screw” but has no information on it. Anyone know what size bolt that is?

Just happen to have a 1974 Unisaw partially torn down in shop. Pulled the motor bolt.
My casting is threaded 7/16-20 based on my tap set, with 1” bolt holding motor.
Washer under head that clamps motor bracket is double thick.
YMMV

PS – If you have a non-US made version, will be metric.

If you still have the old mis-sized bolt, take it to your local Ace hardware, and get sizes that are lager with varying threads to the one you have. Go home and try until you have the proper one. Then go back to Ace and get one that is at least Grade 5 or even Grade 8.

Looking at the bolt shown, it looks like it could be 7/16 or 1/2” -20 or 24 tpi. If you could figure out what the grid is, then you get the diameter pretty easy, but can’t really see those fine threads. If the grid is 1”, then the bolt is probably 1/2”....... Jerry (In Tucson)

What Klutz sez…
Part #31 from the Delta parts diagram lists it as: P/N 901-01-060-0644 (Old P/N SP-664) 7/16-20×1” Hex Hd Cap Screw.

They have been the same since the Unisaws introduction back in the 30’s (including the newly designed models from 2009 and on).

Cheers,
