Head Bolt Sizes

Postby PFord » Tue Jul 26, 2022 8:44 pm

Anyone know the sizes (length and thread size/pitch of the head bolts on the C60? Since mine are nearly 50 years old, I wouldn't mind replacing them when I pull the head and do the cleanup and gasket change. I know I can buy a set of OEM but I have something else in mind if I can get the dimensions.

Thanks.

I purchased standard bolts grade 9 from FASTENAL, seems like they cost about $50. You might find my post from several years ago on the subject but I believe that some of them were in need of shortening about 1/4 inch. I used grade 8 flat washers instead.
