First of all, it's not really that simple of a question, the only way I know how to check would be to take the bolt out. So, basically, you're asking someone to take half their starter out. There may be someone on here with a in-depth manual but I'm not sure.

Have you called Ford or just heard they can't help? I would ask Ford first, as they may be able to give you the size. I've never seen starters come with mounting bolts but I could be wrong.

The amount of views are just that, views, people saw the title of the thread and were curious enough to read.
