BOLT, SHIFT COVER

$6.26

Description
  1. Function: The bolt for the shift cover serves the primary purpose of fastening the shift cover securely to its designated mounting location. This ensures the integrity and stability of the assembly, contributing to the proper functioning of the shifting mechanism.
  2. Design: Typically, the bolt features a threaded shaft with a head at one end. The head may have a hexagonal, Phillips, slotted, or another type of recess for tightening using a compatible tool such as a wrench or screwdriver. The threads on the shaft match those in the receiving component, allowing for a secure connection.
  3. Materials: Bolts for shift covers are commonly made from durable materials such as steel, stainless steel, or alloy steel. The choice of material depends on factors like the required strength, resistance to corrosion, and compatibility with other components in the assembly.
  4. Installation: To install the bolt, it is inserted through the designated mounting hole in the shift cover and then threaded into the corresponding hole in the housing or bracket. Care is taken to apply the appropriate torque to securely fasten the bolt without over-tightening, which could risk damaging the components.
  5. Applications: Bolts for shift covers find application in various mechanical systems featuring a shifting mechanism, including automotive transmissions, manual gearboxes, motorcycle transmissions, and industrial machinery. They play a critical role in maintaining the stability and functionality of the shifting mechanism.
