Re: Understanding RealOEM (ETK) hardware (nuts/bolts) specifications

Metric is usually graded as a class 8.8, 10.9, 12.9 or A2. US is graded as 2, 5, 8 or 18-8 Stainless.

Re: Understanding RealOEM (ETK) hardware (nuts/bolts) specifications

Pretty sure -8 indicates strength grade, but if that's the case, it's standard class nomenclature and not metric.
Tensile = 150,000 psi
Yeild = 130,000 psi





Same as above

Excessive Oil Consumption

Haha, never touched the stuff myself. But coking refers to the residue that's created when oil is exposed to extremely high temperature or heavily oxidized.
