Inter Cooler bolts..

Was under my '89 SC checking the radiator for leaks and stuff. Well, while I was under there, I noticed who ever owned the car before me did some work under there and failed to reinstall the two lower intercooler bolts and just zipp-tied it instead. I don't really trust that and want to replace the bolts, but I don't know what size they are....anyone here know??

Thanks!!!!

Which bolts?? The ones that hold the rubber piece to the intercooler??
i'm think 6MM if the clip piece is still there

Intercooler tube to the intercooler are 8MM

The two bolts at the bottom....that hold the intercooler to a braket ( I believe ) that keeps it mounted to the car.

Technically the Intercooler is connecting to the IC tubes, which are Mounted to the engine.. the intercooler itself moves with the engine

Thanks. I only looked at it once...2 weeks ago. I'll look again and see, may take a picture to show what I'm asking about. The SC's are all new to me.

I like my '89 SC, bought it for $3800...only had 42,000 miles on it. Can tell who ever had wasn't worried about putting her back together properly....just get her back together. The body shows alittle neglect....but still looks good, even better than my '97 Cougar, but the under carriage is corroded some, especially all the bolts and stuff....but all is still solid. I think I'll be keeping her for awhile....the wife wants another Impala SS and keep the Bird for me to drive to from work, which would leave me my truck and CAT also. Didn't want another project, but I'm not complaining!

Yah.. before i got my '89 XR7 and '91 SC i was thinking the same thing.. Each new project just pushes back another project for me..
Right now, i'm thinking of axing the '89 XR7 to use parts to fix up the '91 XR7 i own and the '91 SC or least selling it? but it's 2 colors right now.. Red and White.. (I was trying to make it look like a '91-93 Cougar, so the bumper/hood are red )
Now the T-bird i'm working on, mind you the only REAL problem it has is a bad hot start for like up to 30 seconds at the most, or driving it half a block..

If your talking about the duct boot to the IC, mine only had two at the top as well. If your referring to something else, post a pic.
