    I pulled the upper a arm eccentric bolts on my v8 64 barracuda. I found one had a groove worn in it. I need to replace it.

    Are these bolts specific to v8 cars, early a bodies, or can I go to the junk yard and get one from any year a body regardless if v8 or /6?

    Thanks.

    I think these are everywhere as the bushing itself is a long production run.

    K8243A is the cam kit # from Moog. Should be available at many parts suppliers.

    Rats. NAPA did not have anything back to 1964. I bought one for a 1967 A body. The bolt is about 1/2 inch too long and the bolt shank is flattened across the entire length of the bolt. The factory bolt is not like this.

    I had no luck at the local pick n pull for a used one.

    cudamark, I will send you a PM.

    Cap Auto Products offers grade 8 bolts and hardened eccentric cams, better than factory and certainly better than the "made in china knock off's!"

    The Mopar cam bolts are all the same back to at least 64. Yes, the aftermarket cams are a bit longer and look a little different, but will work fine.

    Put some anti-sieze on the shaft of the bolt. If you ever have to remove it you'll be glad you did.
