1. Does anyone know the size of the bolts that are connected to the seat rails, that secure the seats to the floor?

2. Does anyone know the bolt size needed to mount the seat belts to the holes on the tunnel and down by the door?



I used 7/16-20 x 1-1/4" for the seat belts. 5/16-24 ny-loks for the seat rails. Pat

Can someone explain how this is meant to mount up? First time using a hard top!

Not sure of the factory fitting, but I used eye bolts.

I have eyebolts as well, with a wing nut on top for quick installation. I have posted pics in the past, but don’t have them handy at the moment.

I have that exact same hardtop which I bought new in the mid sevenths and it was supplied with eye bolts for installation.

for SOME hardtops - there is a hole on either side for a bolt to go through - not to mention the 'catch' at the back of the coskpit.

If you do not mess with the Oil pump drive gear (which requires removing the tower), then yes, only two possibilities. If you mess with the pump drive, you can create all sorts of variations.
