Missing TH350 Mounting bolts

This makes me feel retarded. I have a couple issues with my 71' Camaro. Pulling my hair out with it. However I feel like a Moron. I was under the car last ngiht and saw my tranny was sitting crooked. I looked and it is missing both mounting bolts. I have called tranny shops and no one has any. Does anyone know what will fit in the holes or were I can find some ASAP.

Just about any U-pull-it wrecking yard will have them. They don't have to be exactly for a 71 Camaro because all 350TH mount holes are the same thread count.

If yer a redneck, you could use duct tape.

Those shoud be 7/16X14 thread x 1" long, unless the transmission is new enough to have metric bolts .A metric thread is 10mm by 1 1/2 thread pitch.
A 3/8 x 16 bolt will thread in with a loose fit.JMO

Thanks for the info cole. I was under the car yesterday replacing the motor mounts. That was a pain in my ***. I replaced the driver-side before a couple years ago. I am confused as to why it went bad already. but the passenger side was bad as well. i got the driver-side mounted with no issues. but the passenger side wont line up at all. i had the stud through one side but it wont line up through the other hole. No matter what I did. i did find one bolt for the transmission. fished through my bolts bin at home and got one. I threw it in temporarily. But I am going to pull it back out to match it up. Hopefully it is the same thread as you are saying. It is the original tranny. called a bunch of junk yards and no one has any. But thanks for the help

Grade 8 bolts will work too, OSH or Home Depot, if you get one that's too long stack washers, anything to hook it up right temporarily

Wow, that's hard to believe. I guess it depends what part of the country you live in. Even on vehicles that have the tranny's pulled already you can usually find the bolt's laying on the ground under the car as people leave them when they pull em out.

You would think that. The problem is were I live there is only one junk yard you can pull anything on your own. The others pull it for you. But as you know they never want to look for you.

Well there is a problem. I only UNO DOS TRES! I worked in a auto parts store in California for 3 years. About 1/2 the customers were non English speaking people. It was like playing pictionary and charades with them. Most of them are good sports about it. But at the same time I think they just did it to hear me making the noises I thought they were talking about HAHA

LOL. I understand all that. Even here in Indiana, Advance Auto Part's is advertising for spanish speaking counter people. Se habla espanol?
About the only thing I understand in Spanish is anything that involves FOOD.

with it being the origional trans, cole would be correct with the bolts being 7/16 x 14. they need to be 3/4 to 1" long.

He says "BOTH mounting bolts", not too sure what he means by that. Maybe he's referring to the alignment dowels, that would allow the trans to "tilt". IF it actually is "bolts", there really should'nt be a problem finding any.

Yes junior it is both bolts that mount the tranny to the tranny mount. I found one wasnt sure what the size of the bolt was laying in my tool box. So after putting in new engine mounts I readjusted the tranny mount to align with the mounting holes. So I will head to the auto store today to get a bolt that cole is refering too. I am jsut getting more irritated in the fact that the more I look at the car the more stuff I am finding missing. i had it all worked on a few years ago and it sat in my garage for a year while i deployed to Iraq. So now it is jsut frustrating me that there are this many issues with it now.

Which do you prefer? Jody stole your girl? or Jody stole your bolt's?
I figured that with 3 girlfriends, the odd's were in my favor. I never counted on 3 Jody's. Lost all 3 girlfriends between basic training, AIT, and jump school in only 5 months.
