Original long bolts for 1969 L/78 motor mounts
« on: February 14, 2009, 04:49:56 AM »
Big block Camaro's had a unique motor mount that used a threaded receiver on one side.  This meant that a nut was not required to secure the long bolt.



I have an original pair of these rare motor mounts and I will be hunting the correct original bolts that were used in conjunction with these mounts.  Can anyone
post information on these bolts?  I need to know correct head markings, overall length, bolt head style, etc........  An image or two would be fantastic.

Can anyone shed any light?

Just a follow-up to my original post on this topic.  I was surprised by the number of views, but
no responses.  ??? I did get a few PM's though.  Many thanks for those.  Maybe the correct original
setup is more rare than I thought.  In any event, I have been eagerly looking into this on my
own and I've purchased several original correct items ( I believe ) over the past two weeks. 

Shortly, I will post more images to show all of the original components in the original big block
motor mount setup.  These will include frame mounts, motor mounts, stop bracket, standard
long bolt & washer for passenger side and odd-ball longer bolt, lock washer, flat washer, bushing,
flat washer setup for the drivers side.  I'll have some questions for the group once I post everything.

Through all of this I was able to finally make sense of the AIM page on this topic as well.  ;D
