Default i need help plz

Ok so i accidently striped a hole in my crankcase (one of 4 that holds the head on) on my o.s. .18 engine . but since there are more threads down in there all i need is a little longer of a bolt. the original is a C.M2.6x12. does anyone know where i can get a little longer one? or maybe buy one from someone on here. even if i have to cut it a bit or use small washers..............

Just take the original to the local hardware store. I'm sure someone there will help you find what you need.

You can measure it, then go to www.towerhobbies.com or www.amainhobbies.com and order one that is slightly longer than the one you have. Thats what spidey would do
