I just looked in langs T bag with my order in it now find they left out the new bolts and lock washers for the Bendix. Does anyone know the size and pitch. Is it a ace hardware item or call langs back Monday and get those. I don't get another day off until Oct 10th. Love to get this back together in the morning. Tim

If they are the bolts that hold the bendix on the shaft special bolts and washer (I'm not saying you can't make something work) as one has a "tit" and if I recall the heads are thinner.

Tim, unfortunately those bolts are a very odd size/ pitch.I doubt you will find them at the local hardware store.

Go to the hardware store and get metric allen head screws. See discussion here.

Have you called your local Ford dealership/garage ?

I think the number is Main - 41.

Thanks everyone couldn't get them at my local hardware today but thanks for all the info. I will have to call langs Monday morning. I need a few other goodies. Tim

Another option(not for the purists) is to re-tap the holes in the hogs head for 1/4-20 bolts. That way, if you have to change the starter or work on the bendix and loose one of the bolts, you can get one just about anywhere. I did this and have had no trouble with them. This may be difficult to do with the engine in place but takes about ten minutes with the engine/hogs head out of the car.
