Default extra bolts!! LOL

My engine is back together, still on the stand. '93 SE.. Kinda funny, but I have 4 extra bolts, same size as the 4 bolts that hold the fuel rail onto the upper intake.. Quite possibly from the engine from the parts car, also quite possibly missed somewhere... or will find a home when I stuff the engine back in the car.
For you guys who mess with these engines every single day, can you tell me where these might go, if anywhere? I'm hesitant to continue on without knowing.. Mike

They hold the flux capacitor to the 4-phase variable turbo-thruster. If you don't use them, you'll have to use a fulcrum analyzer to balance the motor.

PCV cover? Vacuum tree? Not much we can do for you, and I tear these things apart every weekend.

Yeah, I figured I was on my own... LOL.. But, asking was worth a shot.. I regularly rebuild some hydraulic pumps at work, I can close my eyes and picture every part of that stupid thing, was hoping someone could say "Yep, 4 go in the fuel rail, and the other 4 go in the flux capacitor." Oh wait.. you DID tell me that!!! Mike

His reservior is attached to the pump, not remote like mine.

Bracket doesn't have 10mm. Bozo. You just put mine together, you should REMEMBER that the bracket is all 13mm and a couple itty-bitties.

You're fired.

Jeez, will, what are you thinking. The flux capacitor bolts to the plasma inducer, THEN to the turbo thruster.
Mike, they're probably from the phase-actuator manifold nozzle.

But the Series 1 has TWO phase-actuator manifold nozzles, and he only has 4 extra bolts.

If you're not done with the harassment:

Check your:
1. Turbo pulley
2. Supercharger downpipe gasket
3. Supercharger spooling transfibulator
4. Power steering fluid tank
5. Gasoline pan
6. Headlight retention pulley
7. Belt routing manifold
8. Turn signal fluid reservoir

I'm actually surprised no one mentioned the turn signal fluid reservoir! You people are getting careless!

Troyport, do the bolts look like they have been inside the engine, or outside? Check all the various wire routing and fluid holding things. Good luck!
