Right guys. engine should be ready at the weekend fitting. One bigggg problem.
Seems i have miss placed the bolts. So does anyone no the headsize and the length i require so i can buy them from my local bolt and nut.
I no the starter motor is a odd one but i reakon i could get away with using a hex head bolt but need to no the sizes.

cheers for your help.

Aiden

Not sure on the sizes, but you won't fit a hex head bolt on the starter side. It needs to be the half moon head bolt to clear the start mount flange I think......

Order from Machine 7 this morning, they will be with you tomorrow.

you should have 2 studs at the bottom going forwards and 2 bolts at the top going back.
you can use  normal 10mm 1.5  nuts a 17mm spanner size although you can get then 15mm spanner size ones as fitted to the bottom starter stud and engine bolts on some aircooled and they give more spanner room.
