Ford also had a habit of using Metric head fastners with SAE threads (5/16-18) on certain areas. I can't recall the exact size (IIRC 10mm?), but I replaced all of mine with ARP products. Except for the two 'special' bolt/studs used for accessorie mounting:

Of course, it's much easier to do with the motor out of the vehicle .
Hack Fab no more pictures of your garage. It is way too clean and your compressor could be a little larger :tonka:
