    I picked this lil guy off the road with my tow bar. The bolt is definitely mine. These things have been appearing everywhere. I know 12 are from converting to internal button head bolts on the front knuckles. 12 more from the rear since I needed longer for the rear disk brackets. But where else are there 3/8" fine bolts that I need to be checking? Tailgate hinges have new bolts.
    Trans Crossmember to frame are new. I need to check Transmission to mount and mount to crossmember. Where else should I look? :confused:

    That's a great resource Howard! I'm gonna have to make something similar with my motor and brake changes.

    They should all be new (shiny zinc) 3/8 or 7/16 and coarse thread into the gm block without any room to back out without making a heck of a noise

    I'll take a look at TSC and Menards to restock the bin then put it on the ramps and check everything out.

    I like the Swiss Army Knife, I have had one on my Keys for probably 30 or more years. Wife got me another new one for Christmas last year. I have a few worn out ones in "The Box" where I keep things like that. Russel's Knife Catalog has them.

    Aren't the clutch pressure plate bolts 3/8 - 24? Is there a bell housing inspection cover open?
