Hey,
I need to know the proper size bolts to attach the 7m to my engine rotisserie as it did not come with any bolts on the arms for attachment of the engine.
thanks,
eric

what rotisserie? i onlyknow of an engine stand. ive never ever seen a rotisserie or bought one or seen one for sale...

but you need bell housing bolts and they are 10mmx 1.25mm IIRC.

Engine stand - the part that bolts to the engine and can be turned to rotate the engine over is referred to as the rotisserie.

You'll need the same size and pitch bolts as flubyux2 mentions, but long enough to go through your engine stand first, so you'll need to measure how much meat there is on your engine stand.

thast weird, ive never heard of them referred to as 2 separate entities: stand and rotisserie. i can see how the engine stand will allow a motor to rotisserate, hence, be deemed a rotisserie. but, it threw me off ;)

wasnt there a group by on those bellhousng bolts on SM? i wonder f tehre were any left overs. i thnk 2.5" is long enough for most engine stands, and add a fender washer or 2.

Thanks for all the help guys. I especially like the hickory smoked bit. Made me laugh pretty good.

lmao


on a serious note, make sure you use some high grade bolts too, last thing you want is that motor falling off the stand

ya i think like grade 6-7 should do the job, last thing you want is your newly rebuilt motor falling off your engine stand "rotisserie" and cracking or breaking something.

I can see it now: the George Foreman Lean, mean, engine rebuilding machine. Knock out the BHG!

in all seriousness, be sure not to overtorque the bolts and break them, hardened bolts are REALLY hard to drill out.

There is a guy on Supramania that has them for sale. He bought them in bulk but only needed 4 so he sell the rest to members. Check on SM maybe he still has them.

Sidenote: I can only get 3 of the 4 arms on my "rotisserie" to attach to the block. Think this is O.K.? Anyone get all 4?
Is anyone else completely wierded out by working on an engine on a stand?

Thanks for your time,

Alex

try rotating the rotissery 90 degress, I had the same problem and was worried it wouldn't fit on my stand and started shopping for a new one, then I tried that and felt so stupid.

when you look at the bulkhead of the engine stand, the slanted slots are on the top and the horizontal slots are on the bottom.

you NEED to use all 4 to hold a full 7MGTE. a bare block is ok on 3 "arms", but not 600 lbs of 7M fury.

and, i dont know why anyone would be weirded out by working on an engine on a stand... im more releived and satisfied.
