351C Q code: securing the stock coil in the stock bracket
#1
I've lost/misplaced the screw/bolt that tightens the coil in it's bracket.  Yeah, I've a "make do" situation for now, but what type of screw, or is it nut and bolt, used to secure the coil?  Stock coil, stock bracket.  It seems as if the two sides of the bracket are threaded differently:  a screw that fits securely on one side of the bracket does not fit the other. (which may be a PO thing)

If I were to order a new bracket, this is the screw and nut it comes with. My homemade looks remarkably similar - lol!

Too simple, too simple... some things should just not over thought.

Going by memory, I believe the original was a #10 machine screw with a nut that had a built-in star lock washer, about 1 or 1-1/2 inches long.

Sounds about right, except more to the 1" length.  1 1/2" would begin to interfere with the bolt holding the bracket to the engine.  Thanks!
