it doesnt look like any one stud would be longer to give you that mounting point for the pick up. if you cant find a bolt with that little stud on it just make one by welding a short stud on the OE mains bolt head.

It looks like you would still have to put the pickup tab underneath one of the nuts if you get that kit.

You will have to check it when you mock it up, but it has been done before. What pan/pickup are you using?

1. Do NOT ever try to weld on a bolt for any reason. Sure way to find total fail.
2. Get an 'ARP' stud kit with the provision for the stud, they do make one.
Or, at least they did in '07 when I built a 351W for my friends street rod...
