    AN174-24 source

    Does anyone know of a source for two An174-24 close tolerance bolts?

    ACS does not carry them, and can not order them.

    Thanks,

    I get a comfortable number of hits when I Google it. It even looks like Wicks have them in stock. For real weird stuff I go to GAHCO.

    Edit add: HBAs "Down for Maintenance" getting to you, too?

    Thanks Bob. The places that I looked at before posting sell only in quantities of 10. Need to check more.

    Yup, “down for maintenance” is a downer.

    +1 on GAHCO. Their website isn't the most user friendly but they have a great selection of odd size bolts.

    Thanks Bob and Jeff. The suppliers that I had randomly checked sold the bolts only in multiples of 10. At GAHCO, the minimum is 5. With a small order charge, the cost for 5 bolts is $14 plus shipping. While that certainly isn’t going to break the bank, I was hoping to be able to order 2 for about $3.

    if wicks has them in stock it would be a miracle! Seems like every time i go to their web domain all of the products they list have "out of stock" indicated. Just my thought on the matter.

    To close this thread: I went to ACS in Peachtree City, intending to try to convince them to order two for me. They had them in stock, so I bought two.
