Engine to Bellhousing bolt size


What size are the bolts that connect the bellhousing to the engine of a 98 cobra(pretty sure the bolts are the same for all 4.6's). I bought 10mm 1.5 pitch bolts and they sorta turn in but don't want to force them if they are not the right size. I am using them to bolt my engine to me engine stand. I was almost positive the size I said was right but it doesn't seem so.

i am pretty sure that is the correct size. you may try running a tap thru the block to see if there is just some debris in the holes.

Main cap bolts are the same size. I used 4 main bolts to bolt the engine to the stand.

Yeah I think I may have to do this, some of the 4 bolts turn in farther than the others so it is prolly the right size but just not clean threads. I didn't want to screw any threads up since the block is aluminum.

Ford=to expensive, plus these are just for holding it to the engine stand, I will buy all new bolts when I have to hook up my new tranny to this new engine I'm putting in.

Thanks but just looking for the 4 bolts for the engine stand
