any body know of a good site that has bolt size's i need all the bolts for the alt bracket to the block and heads, ls1 5.3, i got the bracket but no bolts came with it, a few look to be 4 inch and a one 5 inch long, thought it would be easyier to ask than run back and forth to the ace hardware

Check amazon or jegs. They've got the free shipping.

Dang it...i was just raiding a 5.3 earlier at the yard. I didn't take any bracket bolts since I'm using a different bracket setup that comes with bolts. I woulda grabbed a few to measure if i saw your post.

Jegs includes everything into the price and still beats most distributors before calculating shipping. Just trying to save you some money bud. I can see you still know everything.

Here's a little tidbit i learned yesterday. If you are in need of a timing chain, cam or crank sprocket the following is required:

If using the gen3 style cam with rear block cam sensor, you can use either an ls1(1x) or ls2(4x) cam sprocket. It's preferred to have a 24x crank reluctor and ecm to match to avoid timing issues.

If using a gen4 cam, you HAVE to use a 4x style cam sprocket, along with an ls2 front timing cover which mounts the cam sensor on the cover. Most are used with the 58x crank reluctor, however the ecm can be adjusted properly in this case. Failure to do so will result in the ecm not being able to recognize the lumps??? and the engine is virtually untuneable!
The exception to this is the '05-06 gto which uses a 24x crank reluctor, but a front cover cam sensor.

The crank sprocket is the same across most LS models. The timing chain is also the same, but everyone recommends using an ls2 style due to strength. Also, trick flow has a sweet adapter kit to use the ls2 chain dampner on a ls1 block which helps more in higher hp applications. I credit Jared (TEXAS82GP) sending me the link for the trick flow piece.

Word of caution: that damper may not work with billet or double roller timing chains... ask me how I know. I now have a very expensive paperweight.

Thanks for adding that Mike. The damper is designed for the factory ls2 style chain or a single roller equivalent such as the C5r chain which is ridiculously priced.

The LS2 chain is plenty strong. The only thing the damper is good for is controlling chain whip. When I went through the LS2 in our TBSS I added a new chain and reused the infamous tensioner.

I would say its safe to assume to adding the tensioner/damper is a good upgrade, expecially for boosted applications.
