    I want to say 3/8-16 x 1 inch , but need to double check , that may be too old , could of gone metric by 1990.

    Search pressure plate bolts on Summit . They have them listed for everything . In a small block in 1990 , I was correct .

    you need flex plate / fly wheel bolts specificly. the std bolts heads are to deep and will hit stuff. i just pulled a 4 speed cause some dumby used std store solts. the heads were to tall and hit the clutch disk all the time. found it was the noise we were lookin for.

    napa/autozone /advanced can all get you a mr. gasket kit of bolts or napa has them in there own packets.

    flywheel bolt pack napa 6151554

    summit search for ya. both sets. http://store.summitracing.com/egnsearch.asp?N=700+115+303524&D=303524

    read real carefully what i was saying. i do not need the flywheel bolts. i need the bolts that bolt the pressure plate to the flywheel. your talking about the bolts that bolt the flywheel to the block.

    Also, pressure plate bolts are special and not the same as store bought bolts. Pressure plate bolts have a special shoulder on them that help center the plate correctly.

    Nope, not correctly anyway. Your local auto parts store should carry them. If not try the dealer or just order them from Summit Racing.
