Hello, just wondered if anyone had a conversion book or similar for Part numbers to screw/bolt sizes please?

Conversion ? The threads on bolts from one system to another are not readily interchangeable. I have just checked in the manual and not found any details, having always assumed  UNF were used.

Is that what you mean?

Not really. most of the bolts are BSF, but as an example, I believe that 2K 3941 (Screws to cowl), are Half inch 2BA Round head screws to give them a full description. The front wings are held on by two different types of Bolts. Both have a quater BSF thread, in fact the majority of body fixings are quater BSF, but how long is a 2K 3047, a 2K 3048 (front wing) or a 2K 9796 (rear wing)? do they all have a pointed end to aid location?
