Hi Ted,  I'm not sure if I measured the thread diameter correctly,  but I came up with a strange  M-4.5 size.    And they seem to have an extra fine pitch.  You can probably take the body to a good hardware store and try some Metric bolts for fit  You might try both an M-4 and M-5  to size  up.   Scott Davis, Minneapolis, Original message: I have a first generation Record FD, the one with the two screws which secure the upper and lower cage pivots to the body.? Except mine is missing it's screws.? The screws are part #'s 781 "spina superiore," and 783 "spina inferiore."? They can be seen in Campagnolo Catalog 14 on the page with the Record FD exploded diagram.

Would anybody happen to have a couple of these screws that they could part with?? I would pay for parts and shipping of course.? If you have the screws on a derailleur but need them, how much could I pay you to please give me the exact measurements and threading info of the screws so as I can have a couple of these made?
