    Hi guys,
    One of the bolts came up missing when I went to put my tranny (5r55e) back in. I think my seven year old "helper" disappeared it and the 13mm wrench I was using too. I made sure that I left the open hole one that I could get to more easily after the install. The bolt is one of the middle 4, top to bottom, and is 10mm by 40mm long. Can you tell me what the thread pitch is? Truck is 99 ranger xlt 4wd xcab 4.0 ohv.

    Pitch

    You could take one of the other easy to get at bolts out and take it with you to the hardware store. Find a nut that goes on easily then take that nut to find the correct pitch for the 40mm bolt. Worked for me :)

    Thanks!

    Thanks Brian,
    Guess that's what I'll have to do. No one I've talked to knows the thread count off the top of their head, so ... , back under I go!
