Okay, the thing I've not seen questioned is the 5/16 bolt size on a valve cover.. The only one I've ever seen is one in my shop right now that had the original 1/4-20 screw threads damaged so my Dad drilled it out and tapped "1" hole to 5/16. Looks really strange with the rest of them at 1/4".
He wants these type bolts,

Thanks. I had done that in the past years ago where I walked up to them and I had tools, found the parts on my own and they were ok with browsing around. Those days were so cool. I saw so many cars, motors and parts. Too bad a lot of those are gone now. A couple places I called were down right rude when I mentioned any Mopar engines not just bolts.
Oh maybe the size is 1/4”with a 1/2” head. I don’t plan or drilling anything. Everything else on the car is there.
Definitely... I don’t necessarily have to have everything OEM but so much of the car is still original and complete that I just wanted to make sure the engine and engine bay looked and functioned as close to factory as I could. I know it’s not perfect but it’s looking better.
put a non correct bolt in the back where no one will see it for Christ sakes.
You would think that a match would be easy to find. It's not.
See the photo of the factory bolts above. I was referring to the top set with bolt heads. I have the bottom types that go on the corners. Those 2 studs stayed in place where they were originally. The bolt head type fits the other 4 holes per valve cover and are visible.
I sent 68-New Yorker 2 bolts off of a '68 440. They are OEM, so they should fit his needs. I never throw any small bolts etc. away, never know when they might be needed!
Thanks Newport 66!! I'll get this thing back together with determination now.
Linkage and other stuff back together
How do you like the Holley?
Bolt that manifold down before you get too far!
HowTF does a post looking for one stinkin common valve cover bolt run two pages??
It’s been great. I didn’t change it but I’ve read where New Yorkers were built with Carters. I totally rebuilt it when the gaskets started leaking from E10 gasoline.
Does anyone know if Holleys were original to some of these. Nothing tells me for certain. Would it be on the build sheet?
Thanks. Haha. That’s actually the location of the air conditioning brace. I painted that awhile back and will put it on tonight.
This is great isn’t it. Thanks guys!
3 words. Because it can!
Stagefright, i think. He's gotta put one in there sooner or later!
I think he needs a ballast resistor too....
