Default checked all that..

All the bolts you speak of here have been accounted for! And I don't know about you guys, but my gasoline pan, according to my manual, is to be mig-welded into place while it is half full of gasoline, to allow for proper alignment... Did I mention that these bolts are left-hand thread? This tells me that maybe I only need them if I reinstall the optional roof wheels, which allow for upside down driving on hilly terrain..

Ha, ya know, funny thing, I removed and bagged and labeled everything.. Just to prevent this type of thing.. and because I knew this job would be a long term project. Last night, my younger daughter'* science fair was last night, and I was on the judging panel, so I didn't make it to the garage at all. Damn, life does not get any better than that... for those of you with children, take heed..
In the process, I also can't find the two little screws that hold the throttle cable bracket to the top of the throttle body - this also boggles the mind - but I'm starting to think that this could be the work of my older daughter, when they were younger, I had a history of hiding puzzle pieces from them, they promised me payback some day, this could be it.

I'm glad I have been able to provide some laughs for all of you, it is kinda funny..

Mike

Default bolts

With all the B.*., I didn't see that there was actually something constructive in there... the bolts most certainly were from the outside of the engine, that was one of the first things I took note of when I realized I had a problem... Mike

Just a thought: I worded the list so that you were to check the PS fluid tank, or the large reservoir, and the gasoline pan, or the small pan like the one for oil or transmission fluid. I thought it was hilarious.

Thanks for clarifying on the inner/outer part.
