Motor Mount/Stand Connecting Bolts

Ok, I know this is a stupid question, but why can't I find the bolt that connects the motor mount to the frame mount for a SBC? I would think there would be fasteners specific designed for this purpose?

After all these years I bought two matching Grade-8 ones from a local hardware store!

You can get the stuff at a hardware store if you're not real fussy. Be sure to use locking nuts. The originals were "crimped" like a rocker stud nut, but the nylon ring ones would work fine.

Re: Motor Mount/Stand Connecting Bolts

I'm reviving this thread. Can anybody tell me the size of bolts that attach the engine to the frame stand? The jackass that replaced the 327 before me just put in some dinky little bolts, that are too small.

Re: Motor Mount/Stand Connecting Bolts

I just replaced my mounts- HP tall type from 69, to the normal short type for 68 - to install a 350 into a 68.
The removed perches were GM but I dont know if it was original or not, as they are 69 tall type in a 68, although the engine was?? maybe someone swapped them in to the past for some reason.
anyway, therefore, dont know if my bolts were original, but they did not fit super fit,
just normal fit, with about 1/16" at most float of the perch to bolts.
the bolts had head on top, and lock washer and nut on bottom of frame.
may have been heavy hex nut?? the threads appeared normal and not a course thread.
Just make sure they are at least a grade 8 or better.
hope that helps.
