Anyone recognize these bolts? They're a 15mm drive.



I'm reassembling a Fiero that has had it's engine out for a while. I have just bolted the cradle and suspension back in and have ended up with two extra bolts. Anyone recognize these and where they go? I don't want to get too much further without figuring this out...

They look to me like the bolts that hold the one shifter bracket, but those are definitely accounted for. I think these are a slightly larger thread than those...

It's an '88 GT with a 3800sc/Getrag 5 speed.

Thanks,

Brad

Looks like the motor mount bolt from my 3800sc, the ones that go over the knock sensor metal plate into the block.

I actually just went to the hardware store today with that bolt and bought 3 that were like that but inch and a quarter long to make up for Fierorog's 1/4 inch mount thickness.

Now because of my short term memory loss from my stroke I always use a bunch of Ziploc baggies and label them with a sharpie marker to label each one with a description of where they go. Not that, that will help you now but something you should keep in mind for the next time.

hell you can also draw a diagram of where the bolt goes on it or on an index card and put it in the bag as well.

Or If you can't identify where they go, just write "Beginning of next Fiero build" on the baggie.

Are they for the engine lift brackets on the front and back of engine? If you only have 2 that makes sense since each bracket is bolted with a bolt on one side and one of the studs from the exhaust manifold on the other.

Thanks for the replies, I was checking the motor mounts and found where they went, they were two bolts on the back of the AC compressor (that seem redundant anyways).

I'm normally pretty good at keeping track of where bolts and cables go, but I had a friend helping me with some of the disassembly last year and some stuff got set off to the side.
