'50 Model AD Radiator Support Bolts

I'm looking for the radiator support to frame cross member bolts & shims as shown on sheet 2.11 in the 47-54 Factory Assembly Manual. Apparantly in our haste to dismantle last year these items got misplaced. I've looked in the LMC catalog & online, & Bowtie Bits online and have not found these listed. I also searched The Stovebolt and can up empty.

Appreciate any help.

Re: '50 Model AD Radiator Support Bolts

From what I remember I think I just used some long 3/8 bolts and made shims from thick hard rubber, like old tires sidewalls
These shims are a critical adjustment point for fitting the hood to the cowl

Here's the pads

And the bolts

They use carriage bolts, which you may be able to find locally. This allows you to loosen them when everything is put together and add shims.

Re: '50 Model AD Radiator Support Bolts

if it's anything like the tf mount there is also a tube spacer thru the rubber
this allows you to tighten the bolt without totally squashing down the rubber
