    I need to find some seat bolts for my '70.
    Main problem is that here in Italy is not easy to find (and also identify) inch bolts.

    - First of all front seat bolt
    There are still some bolts (they bolt in correctly in the floor) and I measured diameter.
    I think it's a 5/16" (about 7,9mm).
    But I saw that there are 5/16"-18 and 5/16-24, what's the correct one?

    I presume difference it's distance between threads but it can't tell what is correct.

    Rear seat bolt
    My '70 lacked also some rear seat bolt (backrest bolts). There is none!
    Can you tell me what to buy?

    Thanks in advance for any replay!

    Here's some from my 73 that I don't need. The thread is 1/2" X 13 threads per inch. If you want them the shipping is USPS $23.50.

    Many thanks to everyone.
    Yes, Big-Dave, maybe it's not so evident, I'm looking for front seat track/floor bolts.

    Oledave, thank you very much for your time, but this is not the bolt I'm looking for.
    You are talking about seat BELT bolt.
    I'm looking for seat track bolts.... Hex bolts with free spin washer.

    Similar to those:
