id love to give a hand on that but all mine is missing
Totally Stainless has the studs that the Dorman #23744 have (I have a couple sets of these if anyone is interested).
For my 1993 5.0 w/ accessories, I ordered two part numbers from Totally Stainless:
6-0897 (Engine Kit) & 6-9029 (Stud Bolt Kit for 302 SBF EFI Water Pump)
This comes with:
Intake Kit (6-0585)
Valve Cover Kit (6-0504)
Stud Bolt Kit (6-9029) & Water Pump Kit (6-0592)
Timing Chain Housing Kit (6-0844)
Thermostat Bolts (6-0588)
Distributor Hold Down Bolt (6-0532)
Oil Pan Bolt Kit (6-0522)
The Water Pump Kit (6-592) worked perfectly, studs and all. It actually had a long bolt and two shorter ones left over and I run full accessories (A/C and P/S). They fit great and look even better. Total cost was $83.35 and it took about 3 weeks to get to my door, which is normal for them.
Here are some other part numbers that have worked on my 1993 5.0L:
ARP-154-1001 - ARP Camshaft Bolt
ARP-450-1702 - ARP Distributor Stud Kit
ARP-150-2501 - ARP Harmonic Balancer Bolt
ARP-154-4001 - ARP Head Studs for AFR 185's (need bolt spacers)
ARP-154-3601 - ARP Head Bolts for AFR 165's (or similar)
ARP-400-1414 - ARP Header Studs (stainless @ 3/8-16)
ARP-400-1110 - ARP Header Bolts (3/8-16 x 1")
ARP-400-7606 - ARP Valve Cover Studs
ARP-100-2801 - ARP Flywheel Bolts
ARP-200-2802 - ARP Flywheel Bolts (slightly stronger strength)
ARP-450-3501 - ARP Starter Bolt Kit
ARP-100-9904 - ARP Thread Sealer
STG-8953 - Stage 8 Locking Header Bolts (3/8-16 x 1")
23744 - Dorman Motormite (Water Pump Stud Kit)
FMS-M-6397-A302 - Ford Pressure Plate Bolts
397-M-6397-A302 - Ford Pressure Plate Bolts and Flywheel Dowel Pin Set
Also, a few months ago 50resto.com (latemodelrestoration.com) came out with a full and accurate timing cover and water pump stud/bolt kit for $80.
I have a ton of other random part numbers, but not bolt specific.
Throttle body studs:
5/16-18 thread and 4.125 inches long
********What are some of the various BOLTS, NUTS AND STUDS on the Stang that you would recommend replacing with STAINLESS?
I'm going to be putting back a lot of fasteners and would just as well do it now.
whoda thunk it! Good Thread...
my throttle body studs were replaced with stainless bolts. intake. headers, water pump, thermostat housing, timing cover, timing pointer oil pan and valve covers
pretty much all of them
Actually, 5spd GT did a very good job of what you are asking about. I would follow his plan, since he seems to have covered most of the bases.
Thanks for the input on this question.
I never really thought about changing out these fasteners to stainless. I did notice that the old ones were a bit pitted, not too bad as my car has been garage kept with 45K., but I plan to keep it outdoors a lot more in the future.
I'm going to check out 5spgt's thread to see what will work for me. I''ll report back with what I end up replacing out and from where...
Battery hold down bolt
6mm x 1.0 x 55mm
thank you sir! added
