Another problem we encountered was that nearly all the fasteners were missing, plus this era of engine requires a mixture of metric and standard hardware. We decided to replace as many items with new as we could track down and fit, and found that many companies offer fairly complete engine fastener kits, especially for General Motors V-8 engines. Companies such as ARP offer kits that include intake manifold bolts, valve cover bolts, thermostat housing bolts, alternator bracket bolts, distributor bracket bolts, motor mount bolts, oil pan bolts, coil bracket bolts, header bolts, front cover bolts, water pump bolts, and fuel pump bolts.
