1969 Transmission Cross Brace Support Hardware / Thoroughbred
« on: February 12, 2018, 07:24:44 PM »
On page 13 of the 2018 MCA 1969-1971 Boss Concours Trailered section, it calls out Thouroughbred correct cone (tipped) bolts and corresponding nuts.

Can someone confirm the below bolts being correct for this application?
Thanks!

Also have original cross brace hardware bolts with a different tip. Are these Correct?

There is an 'N' on the head of this bolt.

Thanks!

Can someone help with a confirmation "yes" that the first images I sent with the "F" bolt are correct for the application?

Hi Bob,
When you posted, "looks like them", I am not sure what set of bolts are correct or if you are not 100%.

Does #2 mean that the below are correct with the "F" on the bolt head?
Thank you, Sean

The bolt in question is commonly used on 67 thru 69 transmission mounts, 374181-S2. One detail missing is the bolt is grade 5.

Looks like Ed got it - Looking at pictures the heads are really hard to see with plenty of stuff in the way and poor angles

Didn't want to dig some out of the hardware bin not knowing exactly where they came from   ::)

Excuse me but did you over look reply #2 ?    "Those look like them. F is a typical makers mark" . I thought that was clear referring to the "F" marked bolts but maybe not or just over looked. I suppose I am just chopped liver  :o
