I have a Cobra manifold but it arrived without bolts. How many and what sort of bolts will it require?

The 'sucking thru a small straw' HO manifold you have has 4 short and 2 long bolts. The cobra requires 4 long and 2 short. So pull out one of your long bolts, and find another 2 like them.

What's the spec on the bolt? If I can't source some S/H bolts then I'll buy some new ones.

Gday Vic,use zinc plated bolts as water can get to them.When I pulled my old e7 heads off two of the bolts had corroded away and the water pump bolts can have the same problem so use anti-seize on them when replacing the water pump.It can be very diffucult to get the broken bolts out.

I think I have a few of the long bolts, Vic - you can have them for the price of postage.

Or you can take them down to a "Bolt bar" and get them to id them for you.
The bolts should have notches/lines on the head of them to tell you what tencile they are and then all you need is the pitch and lenght.

Sound advice. Very sound. I had the problem with the water pump bolts. Bit of antisieze and you should be right.

Vic, i'd suggest getting the long and short bolts and taking them in somewhere like coventry fasteners or another bolt place and getting brand spanking new units.

I don't have any of these bolts lying around. The only ones I do have are currently holding my HO manifold together!

So what are the bolt specs, i.e: size, length etc?

I found those bolt Vic, they are near new. PM me your postal address and I'll send them down if you like. Am likely to be able to send at no cost. Let me know if you are going to buy others as I'll keep these if you do.
