flywheel bolts

Hey guys Do flywheel bolts have to be anything special? I have a 454 that was mated to a standard trans and I am going to use it with an auto, the problem is the stock bolts are too long to work with the new flywheel. Can I cut them down? Are they heat treated?

They are grade 8 bolts. I would try and find the right bolts rather than cut them down. The right bolts must penetrate far enough to have the required thread engagement.

They're only $12 at Rick's Camaros, pn CL-49. A local speed shop or Chevy dealer should have them, also.

If the bolts are like the SBC, the flywheel bolts are 1" and the flexplate bolts are 3/4". Most auto stores have them.
