Speaking of that, you can make a double-duty tool set. Get one of each typical size bolt and grind a good slot or two up the side through the threads (like a thread tap). Now you have a bolt gauge and a thread cleaning tool in one for each size. :tup:

Thread cleaners as from Summit, but you can make your own for pennies:

Once you know the thread size measure the length and go down to the local hardware or TSC store and get some bolts. Should only be 4 bolts.
