What in the hell are you guys using for mounting bolts on your engine stands? I have been to 16 different stores today to try and find 9mm x 3 1/4 in bolts and no one has them. Any other advise??

Ok, so in reading through a ton of posts in which bolt size is discussed, it seems that people are using different thread sizes. I have heard 10 and 13 mm bolts brought up most often, yet when I chased out the holes in the back of the motor, I had to use a 9 mm tap. I am assuming that the correct size I would need would be a 9mm bolt correct?

Hello
I just went to ace hardware, the local hardware, and picked out bolts from the bins. They were like 10mmX1.25 pitch and 4.5 in long, i belive. The guy is a rip off cost me 12.50 for 6 bolts.

I just found some bolts around the shop that would screw in. I think they were headbolts!
