Most of the times it is not only the bolt but also the driver, sometimes you have to shorten the hex tip so the rounded edges are gone.

Cheers for suggestions, I will try first the hex that is slightly larger and hit it so it makes the edges flat again. If it dosent work (or if I can't do it) then I will try the 'creating a flat head screw' I initially didn't want to harm the countersink, but I will getting an engine rebuild shortly so will have everything replaced. cheers

Do you know what the dimensions are ? Or what other bolt would fit? Cheers again.- James.

mostly M3x12 but sometimes a M3x16 will fit also.
