Our new used stove is missing a couple of fairly important screws. They are apparently a Whirlpool custom design (p/n W10379120), but are described as "8-18 X 2.5 TR SC AB". I haven't found any pictures. They're kind of pricey (~$15+ net ea, depending); so, if I can use a (modified?) regular screw, I would. I'd also like to be sure there's not something else broken before I buy these.
So, does anyone know what the '8-18 ..' means? Obviously, a #8, and 2.5" long. But, does the 18-pitch imply it's self-tapping or something? And, I have no clue about the "TR SC AB".
