View Full Version : Need help finding the right bolts!

10-09-2011, 11:15 PM
Okay, I have searched and I'm probably just too dim to find what I'm looking for, so maybe you guys can point me in the right direction.

I need to pick up the bolts that bolt the transmission to the motor, but I have no idea what size they are.

If you guys can help me out, that would be awesome!

This is a B6 manual transmission bellhousing diagram. IIRC, the B5/B6 have the same bell housing bolts, hopefully someone can chime in just as a double check.

Awesome info man, thanks a bunch!

^I don't think that post has the correct information for a B5.

Whoops, my mistake. Shouldn't have assumed that the two were the same. Thanks for clearing that up, Walky Talky!

I don't think the one posted in that thread is accurate for a B6 1.8T either. I'm pretty sure it's for the V6. Some of the bolt holes that diagram is referring to don't even exist on the 1.8T block.

If memory serves, bolts number 2 and 6, the 90mm ones...They will be your guide pins. In my experience, make sure that these go in first. Get some pry bars and wiggle it tight before bolting...

Don't try to "draw" the engine and transmission together with bolts. Just trust me on that one. Pretty good way to break some very important aluminum things on your car.

I believe the guide pins are marked by the letter "A" on the diagram. So 11 and 6. And don't ever remove a guide pin (the horror). Seriously bad things happen to people who do that.

Yes and Yes. My mistake.

8 9 and 10 go in to the oil pan, do they not?

10-12-2011, 06:53 AM
Yes, I think 7,8,9,10 all go into the oil pan. I didn't put any of those ones back in mine.

I should not have.

Number 7 is a huge pain in the johnson to remove and install.

I had so much hate that day. So much hate.
