    It’s definitely imperial, not sure what your real question is?

    The thread is smaller than the hole in the Bush.

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    Says they are for Marina but doesn't state size other than UNF but they are the same size(part number) as the lower rears.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    I would check the ID of a Superflex Bush for confirmation.

    Just checked the read bolt and it's ~11mm which equates to 7/16ths
