    Hi.
    First post.
    When the time came to replace the blade in my Titan TTB598MSW I didn't expect any issues.
    I knew it was a reverse thread. Try as I might with a variety of Allen keys and socket sets it wouldn't budge.
    My only option was to drill it out.
    My issue now it to find a replacement.
    Does anyone know the specification of this bolt?
    Everything now seems to be an M number?
    I've trawled the internet but found very little in spares for Titan except for lawn mowers.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give.
    John

    M means it will be a Metric thread and its likely to be 8mm.
    However - this is where the fun may start....it could be metric coarse or fine :eek:
    Is the thread remaining visible or accessible?
    John :)

    Thanks for your reply.
    I've measured it an it is 8mm.
    It's difficult to be sure of the length.
    I'm thinking about 20mm.
    The thread looks fairly course so I'll buy a few and see what works.
    Thank you.

    Not so easy to buy LH threaded bolts John - maybe ebay could come to your rescue. 20mm sounds about right, but of course you can shorten a longer one.
