In the prcoess of rebuilding my starter motor one of the rusted side bolts which hold the motor together sheared off. Luckily I managed to screw the remainder of it out with patience and a pair of vice grips but now I'm a bolt down and having trouble finding a replacement. Does anyone know the specification of those bolts so I can order a new one?

The original screws are NLA. You need M5 x whatever length they are, but they almost certainly will be hex heads, not JIS cross heads (they aren't Philips as commonly thought... ).

You may need to salvage a bolt from another starter. I have the same problem but I have a spare
starter to rob parts from. I have a good starter from a '78 that I hope to put on my Turbo, if it will fit???
