Title: Cuda bolt chart
Post by: Deanscuda on November 07, 2018 - 12:33:26 pm
Is there anywhere that I can find a list of bolt sizes and types for the e-body?  Particularly for things like doors, fenders, hood, etc?

That looks like a pretty good reference!  Bit pricey though.

Yeah, itís nice but I was kinda just looking for a website.  Thereís a couple of good ones I used to reference when putting my Bronco back together.

Anyway, the door bolts are 3/8-16 x 1-3/16 SEMS dog point body bolts.  The ones in the car side have large washers and the ones in the door itself have small ones.  They are not easy to find unless you want to pay through the nose.

I have never seen a website that provides the information you are seeking in any kind of easy to access/understand format.

The Mopar world isnt like the Bronco world bc the guys who really know stuff like that are in a business of some kind related to restoring these cars and in my experience hold this type information pretty close.

The book isn't cheap but I don't think $125 is outrageous for what it is. If you are trying to restore a car or just want the correct bolts/screws is specific area, this book will generally provide the information. I say "generally" because it was a bit light on the later E bodies (72-74). It does provide very detailed information on the fasteners.
