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
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 no. and grade or better.
