Before you buy a crank bolt you had better make sure that crank actually has a tapped hole. The earlier engines didn't.
It may also make a difference as to whether or not you want to install a new dampner. Kind of tough on the thrust bearing if you have to beat the dampner on with a sledgehammer instead of buying or borrowing a tool(Autozone has loners) that threads into the crank hole specifically designed for the job(in case you didn't know).
