Can anyone tell me the exact dimensions and thread for the horizontal bolt that holds the clutch slave cylinder bracket to the transmission? The head of mine snapped off and I am trying to remove the shaft of the bolt and get a replacement bolt. Rodney says its metric but isn't sure of The size and thread. It's a 1985 gt V6 with a four speed manual transmission. It's the bolt that goes in exactly horizontal into the bell housing and is one of two bolts holding the slave bracket to the transmission.

Thank you !

I found that it is a metric #10x1.5 thread. I bought an extra long length of 2 inches to mke sure to catch all threads in the bell housing.

I know the exact bolt your talking about and when I tried to take mine out it just spun & spun. It wouldn't tighten up either. I'm assuming the threads in the tranny housing are striped out or the bolt has snapped like yours. I had a Rodney beefed up bracket to put on so that jobs been on hold for 4 years or more and the stock bracket has held up so far. Good luck with your drilling job. I may give it another try this summer.

I too am attempting an install of the Rodney dickman slave bracket. My OEM bracket broke and the borizontal screw head snapped off, and my slave fell off of the tranny. Sucks, but luckily I was close to home when it happened.

My bolt stripped the threads as I removed it (had to weld a nut onto it to remove it) and it wasnt stuck in but the bolt had a drill bit that broke off inside the bolt sticking out of the corner which ruined the threads on the way out. (first the drill bit broke off inside and then the screw extractor broke off inside the bolt) I cleaned up the threads with a tap and I'm hoping a longer bolt will grab some threads and hold. If not , I will have to drill the threaded hole out and go to a #12 diameter tap and bolt.

Going to a #12 diameter tap and bolt might be my fix also. Not the easiest spot to work in either.
