Need help with CFM TB auto bracket
 
On My way to work today,about 4 miles from work,My car jumped forward,twice.
Of course this had to happen right in front of the local college,with all the pretty students out running around.[facepalm]
My first thought was the automatic trans went,but I noticed that the gas pedal had no spring to it.
I was flooring the pedal and barely moving....managed to limp to work and pop the hood.
The bracket for the CFM 65 mm throttle body was hanging off the throttle body,all 3 screws that mount the bracket to the throttle body were gone.
Worked my 8 hours of overtime and was able to zip tie the bracket fast to manage to get home.
I called CFM and left a message,but no ones there this late.
Does anyone know what size screws or bolts are used to mount the bracket to the TB???
Need help quickly....this is My daily driver.
Only day off is tomorrow.
Must have been loose for a while,now that its zip tied fast,the idle is good and the response of the throttle is amazing.
Thanks in advance,desperate to get this attached correctly.

Sadly I have no idea but once you get replacement screws be sure to use some locktite on the threads. There is red and blue locktite. Use the one that's non permanent so you can undo thebscrews without stripping them later.

Thanks,good looking out.
I cannot believe that all 3 screws were just gone.
Hoping to hear from CFM early Monday.
Customer service is usually top notch with them.

I can't give any advise, but I always have a bunch of nuts, bolts, and screws that I saved. I'm like a packrat. I always find what I need.

Just got off the phone with William,customer service at CFM....wow,it is great dealing with CFM.
Have a new set of bolts for the bracket en route as we speak.
Hopefully gets here soon.
Going to lock tite them down so this doesnt happen again.
Will post sizes and bolt pics in case anyone else ever needs the info.

The screws needed for the TB automatic bracket:
M5 Screws,appx 3/8th in length....looks to be a fine thread.
