    Anyone know what size diameter bolts are on the bellhousing? I need to get some for my engine stand that are longer to mount it up

    You might try looking into an online Ford parts manual. Sometimes they give the size.
    I checked my workshop manual. It doesn't give bolt info.

    So all of the long bolts used to hold on the accessories on the belt drive are actually long enough to use in an engine stand! Same threads.

    spent 6 hrs today attacking the bell housing bolts and exhaust bolts. I need a beer(s).

    They are a joy! Had to pull my transmission twice in a week. Talk about needing a drink. And I haven’t had a drink in 35 years!

    Oh, by the way, bolts are m10-1.5. Good luck.
