Found the CORRECT missing bolt for fan
by: bob

I have a 20 gal. Craftsman Air Comp. model number 921-166420 and lost the screw which holds the cooling fan onto the motor. I found the screw at MISUMI. My parts list said that the screw is a LEFT HAND THREAD- M5 x 0.8 X 15mm (I know because I ordered two and both were wrong and had to reorder the M6 which fit) but the truth be known that the screw is a M6 X 1 X 15mm which is located at:
http://us.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/110300240040/

The part number is BCBL M6 X 1.0 X 15MM or when you go to order it: BCBL 6-15. I hope this helps anyone who has gone through what I have gone through in locating this screw with LEFT HAND THREAD. I still don't understand how it came out in the first place but now it has RED LOCTITE around the threads.

If the bolt is not stripped, try putting some loc-tite or even nail polish on the threads.

Pretty hard to help finding parts when we don't know the model number, Carlos. Please add that as a comment here.
