I need help identifying a bolt size for an E-type

My friend has a '68 Series 1 1/2 E Type DHC, US spec. There's a
bracket welded onto the front of the firewall on the right side with
two bolt holes 4" apart. He needs me to make a mounting plate to fit
it and we don't know the bolt size for it.

Can anyone tell me the bolt size, and what the bracket was for
originally? It looks original to the car, but it never had anything
mounted on it as long as he had the car.

Thanks,
Bruno

Probably something for the right hand drive version- measure the holes to
find the bolt size.

I am restoring a 71 OTS Series II and 90% of the bolts are 5/16*24
thread. There are also #10*32 screws for washer bottle bracket on the
right side and expansion tank on the left firewall. If you take a
picture and post it maybe someone will be able to have a better idea.

Hi Bruno.

This sounds like the bracket on which the hydraulic fluid reservoirs
are mounted on the UK cars. They would be 5/16" UNF. I believe the
washer reservoir is usually mounted here on US spec cars.

Thanks guys!

The car is disable in my friends garage, and he didn't have the tools
to measure it, although it looked like a 5/16" hole as best I could
see. I'll have him pick up a 5/16"-24 and try it. Sounds like that'll
probably do it.
