Hardware Identification Please?
« on: March 20, 2017, 12:03:10 AM »
So I found these oddities in a bag that contained some of the hardware for my rear bumperettes that I am reinstalling on the car after a 22 year absense.  Not sure where they go or they belong to the car or not.  I am certain the bolt does belong because it has honey gold over spray on it.  Whether it was from the factory or when the car was repainted before 1992, I don't know.  I only have one of these and it is different from the other bolts on the car as it has a tooth washer and it says SEMS on the top.  Any help knowing where or if these go is appreciated.


Thanks
Chris

From the first picture. Left to right

- Roof line weatherstrip retainer (at the back end of weather strip) for a 65 fastback

- My guess would be for the window mechanism

- Don't know where the bolt came from

Chris,
Measure the bolt length from under the head (disregard the washer) to the tip. I assume it's a 5/16-18 thread, so look at the spreadsheet, start with 378156-S2 for length. There is another spreadsheet sorted by description that may give you a better insight into length to application.

So from the underneath the head to the tip is about 7/8.  So I looked at the spreadsheet and I filter by 378156-S2 and then by qty 1 since I only found one of these so far since I have no other bolts like this with this tooth washer, most are the concentric circles with the star washers.  So based on that these are my options:

BATTERY TRAY-BODY@TRAY
DEFLECTOR,FR-HOOD LATCH SUPPORT BRACKET
DEFLECTOR,FR-RADIATOR SUPPORT,LH
HOOD LATCH SUPPORT BRACE-LOWER RADIATOR SUPPORT

Chris,
Oops - Ford made a transition from the external tooth type assembled washer bolts to the disc type in 1966, using existing stock. The transition continued into 1967. Some plants took longer, some quicker. That type bolt "should not" have been used in 1965.
