I finally found that crankshaft pulley bolt!

I am unsure when these arrived, but the bags are labeled 6/28, so I probably received them a week later. So, after 3.5 months, Mom looked at a random bag with my stuff in it, and I found my elusive fasteners.

It looks like she kept putting stuff that she thought was mine in one spot, she ordered me to clear it off of the kitchen table, and I put it in a bag, completely forgetting about it.

I do not suppose that I will ever need any of these nuts and bolts again...

Merry Christmas!

Since they are standard pretty much accross the industry, I would not bet on that they are unnecessary. Even the crank bolt.

You may be amused that my son is going through the same trials on a toyota V6 with a coolant leak. Seems the internet gives really bad advice.
