    Could anyone give me the size of the crankshaft bolt size? I have misplaced mine, and don't know the thread count, what size, and how long.

    Or, head out to a yard and find some DSM's with 420A's in them and snitch one off.

    I've already went to the yards are my town and none of them have eclipse, talon, neon, or seabrings. I've checked 4 yards, 2 in my town, and 1 20 miles west, and another 40 miles east.

    You will want to get the specific bolt from the dealership. If you use a cheap bolt in there, you take the chance of snapping it off in the crank.

    Agreed.. OP if you have to use an aftermarket bolt make sure it is at least 10.9 hardness.

    Well my previous motor before pulling it, the crankshaft was stripped out, so I tapped it, and upgraded to a bigger bolt. I used a grade 8 bolt. But the issue with that was it wouldn't pull the pulley all the way on. So it caused belts to shred every 2 weeks or so. But due to damage to my crank now I have to swap motors. Thanks for the replys thoughs! :) much greatly appriciated!
