I recently acquired a 42in Hunter Original from 1995. Its mostly complete, but missing screws to attach the blade irons to the flywheel. I had some screws from a 52in '01 Original, so I tried them. The screw head fits the blade irons perfectly, but the threads are slightly too large. I decided to remove the isolation ring to see what size the holes were underneath it. One of the screws was so seized that I had to use PB Blaster and vice grips to remove it, resulting in a ruined screw. The holes under the isolation ring appear to be the same thread size as the ones in the isolation ring. I went to the hardware store and established that the screws are not any standard size. Where can I get replacements that will fit? The only option I can think of is to order a variety of sizes until I find one that fits, and I'd rather avoid that.
