Working on a 1950 Chevy 3100 and would like to know the sizes of the bolts that the Factory Assembly Manual indicates. I have three numbers: 122017, 122007 and 120229 . These numbers are associated with the front end panels assembly, i.e., inner fender well, fender brackets etc. Would love to have a "cheat sheet" so I could eliminate the head scratching and cussing
. Any help appreciated . Thanks

Lots of us would love to have that "cheat sheet", but it's hard to track down using FAM numbers. It's been discussed a number of times here on Stovebolt.comApparently the PN's for the bolts were changed over the years and don't show up in the parts manual, although the corresponding nut sizes can be tracked down which will give you the bolt diameter and thread. I believe most of the bolts you're looking at are 5/16" - 18 threads per inch, and roughly 3/4" long. I think the rod type fender supports (rear of the front fenders) might be 1/4-20 and 1/2" or 5/8" long.

Welcome to the forums. You should post in the Welcome Center forum and tell us a bit about yourself and your truck.

I have a complete bumper to bumper polished stainless set for my 53-3100. They are all in little bags and labeled. I can see what my kit has in it if you want or anybody else. I can't guarantee it's right but it's a start. It's got every bolt, screw, washer and pin for the whole truck except the chassis. It's a high end kit.

That's pretty nice. I like how organized it is with individual marked bags.

Bolt and fastener identification is painful at times, that's for sure. Take a look at this pdf file , you may find what you are looking for. This is from the 1954 Parts & accessories manual, Standard Parts. Hope it helps.

Dusty53's attachment was what I was referring to above. I'd researched that before, but none of the numbers I had found in the FAM could be matched up to Dusty's list. Maybe the bulk part numbers listed there are just different than individual bolts. ohwell

Kevin you are correct, some of this stuff is just a mystery to me .
