Starter Mounting Bolts

Anybody know the specs on the starter mounting bolts from an early 99 7.3? I bought an old beater and it is missing one of the bolts, but I'd like to replace all three. Stopped by the auto parts store and they didn't have a way to look it up.

Thanks in advance!

Paul

Take one of the bolts out and take it into the parts store and match it up. I put a couple heli-coils in mine a few weeks back but can't remember the exact size other than being metric.

Yep. That's what I'm ending up doing. I can't tell if these bolts are the originals or not, but the good news is, the threads on the adapter are solid. I'll post what size they are tomorrow so if it comes up again, people will have a reference.

Yep. At least they are on my truck. Seemed like they were about 35mm long. 18mm bolt head.

Thanks for your help!
