Post #1 by mikemacy » Thu Apr 03, 2008 1:54 pm

does anyone have any ideas on what size and grade nuts and bolts to use for mounting the motor and tranny to the frame? i received absolutely no mounting hardware and havent been able to find a kit for a 65 pan online. thank you all.

I don't know about Motor mount bolts from Colony, but I just tried to install their rear stand bolt kit. It fits but it is so soft that I stripped one of the bolts, and one of the nuts. They felt like they were just compressing the split lock washer and the cupped large area flat washers. No I did not use a torque wrench. The nuts were snugged up using a 6 inch box end. Some of the other Colony bolt kits that I bought were great.

but you may also want to consider:
