What Converter Bolts for a PI Stallion?

We used 3/8"-24 x 3/4" lg hex bolts. Put the converter directly against the flywheel and tightened things up using star washers on all the bolts.

Does there need to be a washer between the flywheel and converter?

Do I need to use some special bolts? The current ones are not bottoming out.

Im assuming grade 8 will be fine?

I called PI and they sent me a new set for free. I had problems finding them locally.

I'm pretty sure you don't want to bottom the bolt out. You want it to reach the correct torque through clamping, not because it runs out of hole or threads.

Correct. I just thought I would throw that info in there so nobody suggested that the bolts were too long.

I think we got if figured out though. Thanks for the replies.
