Hi,

If you take them out 1 at a time and measure, it will stay together. Draw a picture, and if there are any different lengths or sizes you can write it all down.



this!

iirc there is 2 or 3 different lengths, the thread size and pitch is the same though


yea they are different lengths, but if you get them from ford you don't need to measure anything..
or just take them from your spare.. isn't it what a spare parts car is there for??
or a wrecker... jeees its not hard.. :roll: would you like someone to go to the wreckers buy them and fit them to your engine as well???..

Geez, this is getting complicated :o .

As suggested, go to a wreckers, with pen and paper, plus masking tape.

Make a rough diagram, as you take the bolts out, number them on the diagram, label each bolt with the masking tape and that number.

Then install them on your engine.
Case dismissed, isn't it :?:

Other thing is too - isn't there one bolt that has sealant on the threads ?? Goes into a water jacket.
Note that on your diagram - you'll also see the sealant on a 2nd hand bolt, not a new one.

Hate to see if you have a serious problem.

Bolts are the same for all AU 1/2/3.
