And people wonder why I keep the cans of bolts from Corvairs.....

Every crushed Corvair with drivetrain installed had a set of these in 
either the long flywheel version or the shorter PG flex plate version.

Parts for a 60's car on the shelf in 2007? That is like finding parts 
for a 20's car on the shelf in the 60's. Not many shelves had them.
