Default Re: engine mount bolts

Here's another place I can make this suggestion. There is no need to use studs in the engine mounts. Replace the studs with Allen head cap screws available at Ace Hardware. There is no need to use studs or cut off heads of bolts to make them. To get the length you need simply screw a stud into the engine as far as it will go. Mark it and remove it then measure the length of thread that was in the block/case. Add what you need to reach your mount then subtract 1/4" and that is the length bolt you need. Allen heads make for a clean installation, are easy to tighten and most are grade 8 if they are black. Do not use stainless steel for any high stress/vibration application.
