Nuts, Bolts & Washers


I recently dug out my 241 with intentions of putting it in my 1950 Dodge truck. I've had this motor for about 20 years and I remembered that I didn't have all the parts. Most of what I don't have (exhaust manifolds, starter, distributor, bell housing, generator, fuel pump) I'd probably replace/upgrade anyway. However, I discovered I have very few nuts, bolts, and washers. Things like valley pan, intake and exhaust manifolds, timing chain cover. My question is: does anyone offer a complete nut, bolt, and washer set for these motors? Absent that, what is the best way to determine bolt size, pitch, etc?

Assuming the Dodge is similar to the Chr. The top row of valve covers use studs as does all (?) the exhaust mans. They go into oil or water so you don't want to use bolts there. If no complete kits go to hardware store & buy one of each bolt that looks like the right size, keeping each marked as to size so you know what they are. In case you don't know...The LA dizzy is a direct bolt in. The 241 has an advertised C/R of only 7-7.1:1, but one measured out at only 6.19:1!eek Forged 10:1 pistons is recomended.

George, thanks. I was afraid I would have to spend a lot of time at the hardware store...
