Re: engine bolts and stuff

Dunno if it helps, but in the US, you can buy bolt kits containing all the right sizes, etc... but it might be cheaper to buy a stuffed clevo, and pinch the bolts from that.

Re: engine bolts and stuff

All bolts will be UNC. They will range from 5/16 through to 1/2 inch. You can either go to a wrecker and get a full set nice and cheap or simply buy the sets. These sets can be bought as head bolts, big end bolts and main bearing bolts from ARP ( recommend these ones) and the others namely water pump, inlet manifold and exhaust can be bought new but cheaper than the ARP's along with the sump and rocker cover bolts.

Re: engine bolts and stuff

Or try one of the major hardware shops, dunno what you have over there but I get bolts from Rudd's Farm supplies for a few cents each - just borrow some bolts and go hunting :)

Re: engine bolts and stuff

I'd buy stud kits for the mains and head bolts. Grab the rest from a wrecker.
