    Can someone tell me what size and thread the screws are that hold the heat sink in the carriage? I know it’s metric but not sure the thread or length

    Thanks

    Not clear which ones you mean a picture would be great.
    I Think you mean the ones that thread through the top of the hotend from the side of the extruder carriage. R1 and Beta only since the R1+ uses a quick-release plate.

    If memory serves those are M3 and like 55mm long. I don't have the printer handy ATM to tear down and check.
    @WheresWaldo might know.

    I think that you will need 2-3 inch screws.
