Vibration dampnener bolt?

So I started stripping the six in my 66 Mustang for removal. I went to remove the dampener and there was no bolt! Removed the dampener with a puller and figured I would pick up a bolt at the parts house. None to be found of course... Looks to be a 9/16x18 fine thread. Probably 1 3/4" long. Goin...

Re: Ammeter wiring

The Mustang amp meter never really worked even when the car was new. It's been discussed at length on the Mustang forums. The meter isn't wired the same as a real meter is and only shows a small amount of deflection if any. I'll try to find the discussion over on the Vintage Mustang forum tomorrow....
