That might be OK if they were Japanese or maybe Korean but the other Countries?????

At the local Industrial Hardware Store that kind of specializes in Nuts and Bolts I listened in on a conversation.
This Guy owned some Heavy Earth Moving Equipment and He said that if He bought the same Grade of Chinese Bolts in a Moth of use the Popped off.
If He bought the USA Bolts He would get several years of use out of them before they Popped.

1109900419 The part number for the Automatic Transmission Flywheel Bolts.
It may be that place I suggested in My PM does not sell them any more but I am still looking.
Added: OK I plugged the Part number into the search feature and they do have them but they are $6.40 each.
This is very true. They crack as soon as you load them up. They probably start with low grade steel & try & get the required hardness by heat treating & quenching. They end up as brittle as a fresh carrot.
