Bolt Circle With Even Number of Holes Within Circle

To measure or determine the unknown distance c over adjacent hole or pins (largest gage pins that can fit into holes) within a bolt circle of holes (n or number of bolts holes must be even and greater than 4), as shown left in Illustration B, use the equation:

Bolt Circle With Even Number of Holes Within Circle


c = the distance over adjacent pins
d = the diameter of the holes
θ = 360°/n or angle between adjacent holes.

All units shall be consistant and given in inches or mm. Angles (theta) are given in degrees

Distance over alternate pins (c) =??
Diameter of holes (d) =
Angle between adjacent holes (Theta) =
Distance over opposite pins (x) =
