Body to trasmission cross member
I'm hoping in the next few weeks to be installing my motor and transmission. I'm putting a 5 speed split case transmission in my car. I have been going through my bolts in preparation and noticed the transmission cross member calls for an 8x1.25x35 bolt and the other transmission and cross member call for an 8x1.25x18 bolt? The parts book does not show a steel tube type spacer between the frame and cross member. However, in photos of other cars I have seen a spacer on all 6 bolts. Whats the deal with these spacers? and why are they not listed in the parts book?
Will I need them?
What are the lengths of the spacer?
