I need to replace a few engine mount through-bolts and was wondering if anyone knew what the diameter and length are.
I just wanted to buy some bolts with threaded ends at the local hardware store instead of ordering online and waiting for them to be delivered.
I can figure the length myself.

Thanks,

Mike

Will you know what quality you are getting at "the local hardware store?"

Much of that stuff is "soft" metal coming from China, with improperly marked strength stampings on the bolt heads.

3/8" off the top of my head. Buy some stainless bar and make your own, if you have a set of cycle taps.

The Lord helps them who help themselves
Stainless fasteners BSA fasteners list.
Look up your part number then look it up.
Better still print it out and keep a copy in the workshop.

i'm lucky enough to have an industrial fastener shop nearby. i can get high quality grade 5 fasteners in any diameter or length i need. i use NF thread and nyloc nuts for all of it.

better than original.


i have no idea what i'm doing.
