Thermoquad bolts
« on: March 23, 2010, 07:31:37 AM »

I have a 1979 360 w/ a Thermoquad and I'm in need of 4 new bolts for its base.

I removed the four bolts at the base that secure the carb to the intake and now I can only find two of them.  I looked around online and can't seem to find these specific bolts for sale.  Maybe I'm using the wrong terms?

Are these bolts specific to carburetors or will any bolts do?  Anyone know where I can get replacements?  Thanks.

Advice I recevied from a mechanic: "Don't use bolts on a carb.  Use studs and mount the carb with nuts."

Take one of your bolts and go to a parts store.  Using the bolt as a dimension guide, buy four studs and nuts.  Insert the studs and then mount your carb.
