    Go to the store and get, "flex plate bolts" and "torque converter bolts"

    IIRC 7/16-20 into the crank and 3/8-24 and nuts on my TH 400.

    Aren't the flexplate bolts different than regular bolts?

    yes. They have shorter heads.

    And of course they're fine thread.

    What's sitting around your house will NOT work correctly.

    Don't skimp on these, these bolts are very important.

    Im going to need flexplate bolts, can I just go to the parts store and get them? What store are you talking about?

    Yep, just an auto parts store. Some places have them packaged on a card, sometimes around the chrome dress up stuff, otherwise just ask the guy (or girl to be 100% PC/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif) behind the counter.
