    Angry Beta Bolt Size?

    Bolts for the allen headed c.v. joint thru bolts, ball joints bolts: what size? What size for
    the cam cover bolts? My 50+ yr. collection of tools were stolen during a recent move.

    Also note: the cam cover hold-down nuts should only be SNUG by hand. I screw them down finger-tight, then hold an Allen socket in my palm like a screwdriver to give them one last little twist, and that's it. Any tighter than that risks warping/cracking the cam cover (if you're lucky) and/or cracking the stud-holder bridge inside the cambox (if you're unlucky, as this requires removal of the cambox to weld the crack).
