I need a set of coupling rod screws for a late 70s Stainz. These have the usual hex head but a proper metric thread instead of the self tappers that we are used to these days.

The same screws would have been in use on many of the earlier locos, so if you have a loco from this period that is broken and out of use it may well still have the screws I need....

I am about to re-wheel my original Stainz (again) and I have found a set of original metal backed driving wheels, like it was supplied with. Last time I re-wheeled this loco in the 1990s I could only get the plastic centred wheels and not then knowing about the self tapping coupling rod screws, I foolishly cut my original screws short so that they would fit! Doh!

If you can help please let me know.
