What are the bolt sizes for the bellhousing both to mount the bellhousing to the block and to bolt the transmission to the bellhousing? Also the pressure plate attachment bolts, what size are they?

I would like the procudure doing a thread on how to measure bellhousing run out using a dial indicator.

My questions are:
If the bellhousing input hole looks un scarred, is it still important to check this?
How is it corrected? Or do you replace bellhousing?
What would I be looking for?
How much tolorance allowed?

The procedure is in the service manual.  Every factory bellhousing I have checked, except for 1, has been within spec.  The blow-proofs are always out.

I'd say this is considered a colder month now. Is a trip in order?  Or was it fixed?
