Hi all,
I am pulling and mounting a V6 2.8L tomorrow and need to know the bolt size to mount on the engine stand. A member that's been helping me out says its either 14 or 16mm threaded bolts but need to know for sure. Will have to pick these up before pulling the engine.
If anyone knows the exact size it would be appreciated and save me a lot of hassle. Big day tomorrow!

According to ETKA they are M12 bolts. They don't list the thread pitch, just says M12 bolts various lengths.
I know I was telling you M14 or M16 but I didn't know for sure.
ETKA doesn't lie.


See bottom diagram

Perfect, thanks for that. I'll have to check but I think my BMW also has the M12 bolts so i might get lucky and be able to use the ones I have on the stand already. Big job today!
