    Cant figure out where the hell I put the bolts that hold the driveshaft into the differential. Anyone know the thread pattern? I need to make studs for the adapter plate for t-5 anyway.

    I had some stock of 3/8ths 24 and it went in, but it was too loose. it's like .37x inches, and the 10mm is like .395 i think? i imagine it might be 10 or 11mm, being a metric bolt. anyone have one of these cars, could possibly yank a bolt and check it?

    any help would.. help.. lol

    thanks!

    I could about guarantee it's some sort of fine thread metric, but what exactly? Couldn't tell ya.

    Might try picking up some fine thread metric bolts and seeing what works.

    my exact fear... having to spend $2.38 to find the truth...

    i figured this was what i was going to have to do anyway...

    replacement tc motor, tc tranny, mustang v8 driveshaft are almost complete..
    all solid mounts and adapters! i may have to keep those heavy leather seats in there after all! LOL
