im doing the power steering conversion and read that the bolts that attach the bracket to the intake manifold were m10 1.5 28 however, those bolts do not fit.
my google-fu has also failed me. any one know for sure?
3/8ths is the thread size! what a pain that was 4th times a charm i guess lol it was the ones that bolt the bracket to the intake manifold. and its the bracket that connects from the intake down to under the motor mount.
I've got v belts.... I think you can throw that theory out the window. 89 yj here.
If you have an 89 with an 89 motor in it, if it has metric bolts on it then either someone previously switched them or you have some type of hybrid motor. The 4.2L motors didn't have metric anything on them.
My 87 has no metric on the entire Jeep, and my 93 was all metric except for the oil drain plug...lol. I stripped it the first time I changed oil (figuring it was metric) a 15mm seemed to fit tight. Till I reefed on it and stripped it. It was 11/16.
