Hi. Anyone got three of the short bolts that hold the fuel sender unit onto the fuel tank. The original sender unit on Renee had a cast metal Veglia unit standing about 25mm from the tank top, with obviously long bolts to secure it to the tank. The Franzose replacement has just a thin metal flange, and Franzose say they do not supply the bolts. Are the bolts special in any way or could I just use short 4mm bolts , or cut the others down? Any thoughts gratefully received.

They are normal M4 screws, you can even use the original ones preferably cut down to minimize the risk of exposed threads corroding. If you are getting new ones, try to find them in stainless.
