+1 for pictures...

Next rough guess... Often, parts related to cylinders are made available by the engine manufacturer...

Best regards,

Item 64.. It ties the front and aft baffle together.

I ended up making mine, I threaded 3/16" (?) stainless rod, once installed be sure they cant come in contact with the oil return lines from the rocker boxes.

I think they were, you still have 1 pictured above just measure it. I was missing 1 when I purchased the plane 4 years ago, someone had run safety wire in its place that was rubbing on the oil return tube. I had SS rod so that is what I used and just fabricated all of them (4?). The bends need a radius or they will break either during the bending or while in use, not hard to do just very tight area to work

I just took welding rod and ran the thread die down them. That's what the originals were made from :-) Soft enough not to crack when bent.
