    I have a K5 I am building from the ground up.:laugh: The problem is it was apart when I got it and most of the nuts and bolts are not with it.:(

    Where could I find what bolts/nuts sizes go to different parts of a total rebuild such as this.:confused: Stopping and hunting for every bolt each time I want to put something together is stressing me out not counting slowing the build down.:mad:

    Thanks for any input.

    Try to find an assembly manual on eBay.

    that would be a good start, and then go buy $100.00 worth of grade 8 fasteners in 1/4 to 1/2 sizes to have on hand so they are there when you need them, and clean and new too:eek1: :eek1:

    Dealers parts books..

    If you can get a parts book from a Dealer's parts counter, or on E-bay,etc,they list all the bolt thread pitches and length,etc..saves a bunch of guessing and buying bolts that wont fit..some of the bolts are special length,or shouldered ones that you must get from GM or a boneyard,as in seat belts,and the shifter bolt on a NP205 ,etc..:crazy:

    Check some restoration places. I know they have complete bolt kits out there for classic cars and someone may have one or be willing to make one for you. Just a thought. I don't think year one has them but some place like that. Does LMC have a hardware kit available?

    Anyone around here have such a book? You know where I am going with this - I would beg, borrow or rent such a book from somone.

    Again for a '74 K5 Blazer or a vintage close to that would probably work.

    By the way, thanks for all the great input.

    Thanks for all of the help. I ordered the e-bay manual today and will advise if it is worth the $$$$ or not.

    Thanks again,
