??? weren't the original screws holding down the cover a plastic-headed
brass screw?  OK, so I'm picking nits.
Yes, the plastic heads break off when over-tightened, so I too replaced
mine with a metric allen-head cap screws (try Lowe's or Home Depot for the
black-oxide finish if you don't need the rice-spec 7 hp and 9 lb-ft
:)  take an original with you so you can figure out the threadsize &
length--i don't recall.
