    rear brakes

    I'm replacing the guard on rear wheels, turns out a bit of a nightmare,the calliper bolts are rotten so had to use irwin bolt removers, 2 bolts have snapped on guard so i'm drilling them out but i need to know the pitch of the 10mm thread to re-tap the holes, the bolts are 10 x 24.5 but it doesn't mention the pitch, can anyone throw some light on this. thanks

    The 2 rear caliper carrier bolts are M10x1,25x20 but the 4 splash guard bolts are listed as M10x24 with no pitch specified. I would guess they are also 1.25 pitch but don't quote me.
