Question

What is the correct size bolt thread and type thread for the AMC V8 valve cover bolts?

1/4"-20 x 5/8" thread? If someone provided you the noted figures would this work for the AMC V8?

On the 1988 model year, they are 1/4-20. The length sounds like it would work depending on the thickness of the gasket.

I recall that was the size my 1976 360 used. I had it off often.

i used the bolt package from the help! section that are made for transmission pan bolts and those worked fine and look great.
