Quick question: Does anyone know what screw size the Grafloks take? A quick look at the repair manual only describes it as "special"

Flat head? A Crown or Speed may be able to use a round head screw. I'm not going to disassemble my Super to find the length. Its probably 3/8 inch long. The "special" is a shoulder that only a NOS factory original will have or a special head.
3/8=.375 * 25.4= 9.525mm.
A #2 machine screw is .085 inch in diameter.
.085*25.4=2.159mm.
