I opened the rear junction panel on my MC-9 yesterday and only one of the six Dzus fasteners had the spring receptacle on the panel body.  Does anybody know off hand what size those fasteners are?  I could get measurements and search the catalogs to find them but hoped someone here could save me the hassle.  Thanks in advance

Did you contact MCI parts directly? I have found the tech support folks very helpful and very willing to solve my problems. I have spent many an hour searching for a better deal on parts only to finally decide that MCI online parts was my best option.

Good luck!

No, I haven't yet.  I didn't think they would still carry that type of part for the MC-9 and didn't think that it would be used on any of the newer stuff.

Dzus fasteners are still readily available, even on Ebay.  I think that you can find specs for them online too.  MCI probably has that too>

You mean the S-spring?  There are a couple of different sizes and depths, can you measure the spacing between the rivets?

edit:  I went out and looked.  You need the large size, 1 3/8".  I don't know what spring height you need.  http://www.dzusfasteners.net/categories/Dzus-Springs/?sort=priceasc

I couldn't stand it either and got dirty again.  It is a Dzus P/N D4-S6-300 which has a center distance of 1 3/8" and a spring height of .300" measured from the mounting surface to the outside of the spring.  Ace if this is what you have I would be forever indebted to you for five of them, well, for a little while anyway.

Ace,
Got any of these left? The MCI church bus I'm working on needs several in several places. I'd just as  soon buy 'm from you as to have to order a large quantity and have 'm sit'n around looking for a home.

BK how many do you need? I sent a bag full to Tom. Sure hope he got them. He should have by now as they were  priority.
I have a few left but since I didn't charge Tom anything, I'd have to charge you double.  Grin
Let me know how many and where to send them IF I have enough!

Ace,
I could get by with about 6-10 of them. I'll gladly pay you for them.
They are for a church bus I'm working on, not mine.

Send me your address and not an email address either because if you do, all your going to get is a picture of them! Smiley
I can hook you up with what you need, no problem and I will still have plenty left for me!
