I can't remember the size, BUT there are two "special bolts" mixed up with the rest of them. If I remember correctly, all the threaded holes are the same, bolt lengths are the same. Two of the bolts have fat bodies below the hex head, like a dowel pin, to help align/position the cover correctly.

Thanks, I thought there where a few "special bolts" but it's been 10 years since I had a top cover off a t176

I have my freshly rebuilt one here in the den. I might be able to remove a bolt if you can pin point which one on mine. image.jpeg

Yes. At least it's just a normal hardware store bolt. Thanks.
