I'm looking for the above, if anybody has any in their parts bins? I took the mech apart in order to clean/repaint the cage and the screws have since vanished... :facepalm:

The bolts are about 15mm total length. I'm sure some others from similar Shimano mechs will also fit. Anything out there :?:

Have a pair off a 735rd. Thread on one a bit imperfect but it screws into the plate well enough.

PM me your address and I'll pop in the post.

The screw on the 735 is 2mm longer than the 739. 16 and 18mm.

I understand. We certainly didn't measure it the same way. Now I measured the screws just like you. 15.88 and 14.2.

That's the correct way now!

The 2 about to go in the post were just taken straight off an RD735.

Now posted, well in the red box at least :)

Interesting info chaps and thanks for this!

I knew there was a difference between mechs but thought Shimano would be fairly similar. As far as I can see the extra couple of mm is purely thread, so I can probably file off the difference if needs be.

I guess that means I'm sorted :D
