Does anyone know the thread pitch and size of the console screws (2) that mount the rear of the console to the floor? I misplaced mine, and this is all I need to mount the console after the 4 speed swap.

Thanks!

If you need a pair still let me know, I have so many bolts from part outs, I’d think I have those and can match them up from my consoles. IIRC the rear bolts aren’t as unique as the front bolts to the shifter.

That was not the correct size. The holes appear to be a bit smaller than a1/4 inch. Most likely metric...

It Paul can't help you out, check out the fastener section in Lowes. They carry all manner of automotive fasteners in there huge selection if general fasteners, including for trim parts. Almost certain that you will find what you need there. Home Depot may carry them also, and you could also try Ace Hardware.

I found two extra that are identical to the ones in both of my Monte’s and I believe are the original style. I can post a pic if that helps and/or just toss them in the mail, should take a small padded envelope.

I did check Lowe's, and they didn't have anything. I started trying any bolts that I had lying around. The only thing I had that would closely fit was a holley float bowl bolt which is 12-24. And it was loose.

The bolt heads are 10mm but the thread pitch is kind of goofy-its like a damn deck screw almost lol
