flex plate bolts

Opgi sold me the wrong size flex plate bolts, too small. Had to got to the hardware store and get the right size grade 8 bolts.
The heads stick out a tad farther than the correct type, I hope the torque converter goes on ok?
thanks as always

Sorry TK, you must use specific bolts for the torque converter, they need a shallow head.

Topkat - I got a set left over from converting a '67 to manual. If they'll work in your engine, PM your mailing address and I'll send 'em to you.
