So this is good,
Lately my clutch has been making it hard to engage/disengage any gear going down the road. Look at the new (two years old) slave cylinder, and cant see any leakage or moisture around it. So my buddy and I decide to bleed the clutch.
After bleeding it, it shifted perfectly for about a week, then went to the same problem. So today we go to bleed it again and I notice some movement between the trans bell housing and engine block. We look at it and find three bolts are loose on the bell housing, so we tighten them.
We then realize that at least 3 bolts have FALLEN OUT of the bell housing. They were just gone. And the remaining bolts were loose as a goose. So we tightened the bolts that are left, and I really need to get some new bolts.

I was wondering if anyone can give me the thread size and length of these bolts?
Do they need to be shouldered bolts?
And How many bolts are there total connecting the bell housing to the block?
Thanks guys

6 total (8 if you count the stater bolts), 2 side by side on top, 1 on each side about 1/2 way down from the top and 1 on each side about 3/4 of the way down from the top. None on the bottom. That's an 87 with a 5 speed but I think the bolt patterns and number of bolts are the same or pretty close.
