When connecting the rear crossmember to the body, do I install bolts to outside and nuts in the inside of trunk or..,to be correct
Bolts went down. Nuts on outside,plus cotter pin.
Thank you Jack
of all the coupes I have pulled apart, I have never seen a cotter pin in the rear cross member bolts or a place for one
actually never seen them in any of the body mount bolts
The earlier cars had them. Maybe the dropped it.Was there a lock washer?
Lorenzo, don't forget the wood blocks that fit up in the sub-frame that the body bolts go through, also there are small screw holes in the sub-frame in the trunk that are used to screw the wood blocks to the sub-frame. I used Nylock nuts on my 26.
Forget the cotter pins use all metal lock nuts, it is a much EASIER AND FASTER
Jack, yes lock washers, front and rear had hex head bolts, different size wrenches for head and nut, the center set of bolts were round head
