Hotchkiss wing bolt sizes

Question

Evening all , just a wee question on my restoration on my hotchkiss jeep, i took the passenger side wing off today to get to the battery trays to clean them up , silly question maybe but the bolts that attach the wing to the chassis seem to be UNF ? the others on the grill and to the body are the usual UNC , has anyone else had the same ,

 

cheers keith

There are no silly questions only shared knowledge Keith,

 

Yes that's correct the two bolts through the wing brace into the frame are UNF. It's worth running a tap through the caged frame nuts and a wipe of copper grease on the bolts before you put the wing back on it makes taking it off at a later date easier.
