Hi

The 'as' is not wanted there, so the second one is right.

If you use noun plus verb, then noun plus verb in a sentence and put in a comma instead of a conjunction, that is known as a comma splice. It's not necessarily wrong (I'm sure I do it myself), but some people would say so. You could think about replacing the comma with a semicolon or full stop.

Hope this helps

Dave

No "as". There are other problems.

The diameter of the stem bolt should be precisely 12 mm to fit the existing female threaded socket. A difference of 2 or 3 mm in the length is not an issue.

Here is the corrected sentence.

The diameter of the stem bolt should be precisely as 12 mm to fit the existing female threaded socket. 2 or 3 mm difference in the height is not an issue.
