need to replace oil pan-hole in it-can anyone tell me the size of the bolts and quantity- that way i can get new ones before taking pan off.

i found some metric double ended studs for the lower pan- these should work better than bolts, don't you think?

maybe...

Stripped threads in the aluminum are common. Studs sound like a fine idea, but you might need to install some Helicoils or Thread-serts, something like that, before it will be a good repair.

John, it won't hurt anything. But it sounds like a lot of work for something that just isn't needed. The lower pan is very easy to remove and replace. And if you remember that you are threading into aluminum, you won't strip the holes. They don't take much torque, and mine have never leaked.
