Default What is this bolts function?

Who knows what this bolt (yellow arrow) is for?

This is between the timing cover and the lower intake manifold.

In the application of the 97 bonneville SE that would be a stud for the front engine mount. I think it'* called a torque axis mount?


Seen here behind the wiring harness. The black iron going to the block

Difficult to tell in the picture but the bolt takes a T-50 Torx and has a smooth round head.

Bill I know you are looking at the rust in the picture behind the ignition ground wire.
I have cleaned and lubricated that ignition ground wire and surrounding parts since this picture was taken. I went so far a to actually purchase a can of DeoxIT by Caig.

Actually no...good to hear though.

It'* a Torx probably becuase the hole is in the head and needs to be plugged....probably... sleepy here though..take that in stride.

The hole is actually in the block. perhaps an oil galley runs behind it, however, I don't recall seeing any traces of oil when pulling that stud previously. I have block in my garage I could go pull the stud on and look at should someone desire it.
