I don't read UK bolt heads well, but I have 8 new drive shaft bolts from
TRF made in UK. The heads read A R B across the "top" with a T at 6:00.
They are also a goldish pinkish color which I believe is an indication
of grade 8 maybe???
Can anyone refer me to a web site that will make me a UK bolt head reader?
And thanks for trying to get these bolts. TRF has been backordered for
months, and I understand Moss is also.
