Not sure about the year fitment - Timing Cover Bolts

Your best bet may be to take your old bolts to a hardware store and pick out new ones there.
I did quite a bit of research and could not locate 94/95 specific bolt kits.
I did find some used bolts on eBay if you want to go that route.

He couldn't tell me , all it said was 2 types of bolts and that's it!!! I'm gonna spend a few hours measuring the bolt lengths with this tool I took from work , then I'm gonna go get both types of bolts and see , then I'll post the sizes, what holes, and lengths !

There are two "sets" of bolts, which are usually comprised of the "timing cover" bolts and the "water pump" bolts.
I don't see that the timing cover bolts will be a problem, but the water pump bolts may be because they are much longer and sometimes have a threaded potion extending out from the bolt head for bracket mounting.

I just want to verify exactly which bolts you need.

The guy is wrong I think about the thread count being different.
They should all be 5/16" x 18 thd bolts

Re: Need help with timing cover bolts

I just completed another search and found this information.
Note: I cannot verify its accuracy.

Quote:
There are 9 bolts for the water pump. the thread size is 5/16-18. here are the measurements:
4 bolts - 3 1/4"
2 bolts - 4 1/4"
2 bolts - 1 1/4"
1 bolt - 2 1/4"
All these measurements were taken from under the head to the end of the bolt threads.

Haha just pulled all my water pump bolts off, and that is 100% accurate and the 4 other bolts for the lower half of the timing cover are :
2 bolts @ 2 1/4
2 bolts @ 2 1/2
And that's under the head length also!

Thank you for your help!!!

Since there are none to be had that would be a good idea!
Save your old set complete for reference.
I have some fastener contacts from my former job........who knows?

Re: Need help with timing cover bolts

I read you have a way of getting timing cover fasteners for 94 mustang v8, mine are all corroded and missing threads so I can't put it back together. I need those bolts also and where I live no one seems to have them. I would appreciate it if you'd let me know where I could find those bolts.
Thanks.

Where do you live? I got all my blots from Lowes but home depot will have them a true value, sears hardware and if you don't have any of them around you go on lowes website and order them, there grade 8 bolts and are from $1.19-$1.90 a bolt. Alot cheaper then what the charge at summit and jegs for similar bolts

Re: Need help with timing cover bolts

I live in Savannah, the auto parts places here do not carry any of the bolts, there is a Lowes & Home Depot so I'll give it a shot.
Thanks

Question Re: Need help with timing cover bolts

the oil pan gasket is metal should i just clean it and add rtv to it and put the timing cover on it? It'll not be easy to cut the corners off to replace the corner gaskets, what is the thought on that?

That will work. Just be sure to use an oil resistant silicone sealer and clean the surfaces thoroughly.
