MIXTURE OF INCH AND METRIC FASTENERS
This notice applies to all Caterpillar products.
The use of worldwide sources for components has made it possible for Caterpillar products to have a mixture of
inch and metric fasteners. For example, metric fasteners may be used in electric starting motors, alternators and
other components. It is possible that the internal bolts on a component may be metric while the mounting bolts
may be inch size.
To help mechanics know when metric fasteners are used on a product, future service publications such as Parts
Books, Operation and Maintenance Guides, and Service Manuals will use a notice similar to the one that follows:
Caution must be taken to avoid mixing metric and inch (customary)
fasteners. Mismatched or incorrect fasteners can result in vehicle damage
or malfunction, or possible personal injury. Original fasteners removed
from the vehicle should be saved for assembly when possible. If new ones
are required, caution must be taken to replace with one that is of same part
number and grade or better.
