  • 51 Champ Trans Bolts

    I was sand blasting the transmission bolts today and noticed when they cleaned up the the heads were imprinted with the notation "cp 1038". Anyone know what that stands for[?] I searched the WEB and found several sites that were selling bolts with this head marking, but they all seemed to be aimed and Harly Davision Motor Cycles.

    I was just wondering aimlessly

    I don't know that it applies to your bolts, but 1038 is a medium grade steel, as opposed to cold rolled which is 1018. The 38 refers to .38 percent carabon steel. the more carbon in steel the tougher (more hardenable) it is, up to a point. If this does refer to the compositionn, they might be equivelant to grade 5 bolts.

      Generally any markings on a bolt head that are not grade markings (hash marks on SAE bolts or ratings like 8.8 or 10.9 on metric) are manufacturer codes. I suspect that Tom may be right about the 1039; "CP" is probably the manufacturer, although I don't know who that is.

      I actually spent about a year working in a fastener factory; I now know more about fasteners than I probably need to, and can set up a cold header or a thread roller. I'm not certain exactly how useful those skills are...

        Maybe CP stands for Champion Phasteners [}]

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
