82-87 3.8L Engine bolt size list

I have a 1987 3.8L that i am restoring and I took all the brackets and bolts off about 5 years ago. Now that I want to put it together, I am wondering if anyone knows of a bolt size list for that engine/year so i can replace the bolts in stainless and know what bolts go where.

Re: 82-87 3.8L Engine bolt size list

Why would you want to replace the bolts with stainless ? Most of them you can't. Most
of them you had better not. If you don't know or remember where the bolts go i'd suggest
you send it to a rebuilder to assemble it. Put a long bolt in where a short bolt should go
can cause serious damage or pierce a cylinder sleeve. Cylinder head bolts on that engine are torque to yield and must be replaced with OME or equivalent. No offense.
