1997 SW2
Default Different Timing Chain cover bolts?

I have a 97 SW2 DOHC.

I have two different type bolts that hold it on.

There are 4 of them that are directly below the crankshaft gear on the bottom of the timing chain cover.

They are different sized from the other bolts that hold on the timing chain cover. I need 3 new ones as these, the bolt head is stripped or damaged.

The dealership doesn't show a different bolt.

Are they oil pan cover bolts that happen to attatch to the timing chain cover?

Here is a pic of the timing chain, and the bolts go into the bottom of the timing chain. Not a great pic but you get the idea

The bolts themselves are 8mm bolt head, flanged, approx 3/4 of inch long, medium to fine thread I'd guess. 9.8 is on the top of the bolt.



Any suggestions on replacing them would be very much appreciated.

...

Never argue with an idiot, they will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

All of the cover to block bolts are the same size. The 4 different sized ones are OIL PAN bolts. Take the best one you have to your local HARDWARE STORE and match them up....and pay less than 1/2 as much.

Offtopic, but word wrap and page width gets screwed up with inline images. Making inline images 550 px wide or less is helpful for those on dialup etc.
