In trying to replace the water pump on a 1996 Clubwagon with a 351 (5.8L)
engine, one of the longer water pump bolts siezed in the block and timing
chain cover. I need to find a replacement as well as the the threadsize (so
I can order the appropriate Helicoil).
Can anyone identify the Ford part number (or a website that I could
explore) that will provide this bolt?
The bolt is about 5-6" long, and appears to be a 5/16th inch thread. it has
a hex head located approximately 80% along its length. From the hex head to
the end of the bolt is threaded for attachment of a bracket for one on the
hoses on the passenger side of the engine near the water pump.
Any help would be appreciated.
