I have a ZE i'm going to be putting into my 93 shortly. I havent pulled the original engine or trans out yet. I need to know what size bolts the engine to transmission bolts are so i can mount the ZE to my engine stand. Thanks.

The big ones that you want to use for mounting the engine to the stand are 12mm x 1.25mm. The stock ones from the bellhousing were not long enough to use on my particular engine stand, because of the thickness of its mounting sleeves, but that may be different on your engine stand. Make sure you get plenty of thread engagement, the whole setup is pretty heavy and you can strip the threads in the block if you don't have enough thread.

Thanks, i finally got one of the bolts out to take down to lowes(sp?) and figured that out. From what i can see the stock size ones will thread in almost as far as its possible so it should be alright on the stand.
