Yes M8x1.25. However, the length will depend on what kind of strap you have. The new EMPI ones don't come "pre shaped" to fit the generator and stand. A used VW strap will only require an M8x20 or maybe even a shorter bolt. (Of course there should be a wavy lock washer in there.) Last time I installed an EMPI strap, it took an M8x35 or x40 bolt to get the thing closed enough to tighten, then I replaced the bolt with a shorter one.

Hello!

I can't seem to find any information on the size of the generator strap bolt for an early bay ('71).

Anyone know the size?

Thanks
