Balancer bolt?

Does the 3.8SC share the same bolt with a 302? I see ARP offers a bolt but it's Ford V8.

I dont think so .. if it did, we would be using them with our BHJ balancers already.

The 302 uses inch bolts and the 3.8 uses metric.

If all else fails get a bigger hammer!

Grabbed this out of a document at SCCoA.

Quote:
a new crank bolt, it is the ’98 Mustang 3.8L item, Ford part number F58Z-6A340-A. Washer is
Ford Part number E2DZ-6378-A.
Looks like this is the thread size 14mm x 1.5 bolt

I actually think I saw one in my shop today if you need it. I can upload a pic if you would like so you can make sure it's the one you need.

Thanks, I'll keep it in mind. Have to see if the threads in my crank snout are FUBAR or not first.......

I had a ARP bolt on my 4.6L, very good stuff but I'm sure on the 5.0L to 3.8L, sorry.
