Just the title says, I need to bolt down the coolant tank so that battery isn't falling around in the engine. Anyone know what size bolt this is? I couldn't find anything in the search. Thanks.

The coolant recovery tank bolt is M8x1.25x30 the part number for the GM part is 11514478 but its no longer stocked by GM, your local dealer will have to get it from the VPI DIVISION (Vintage Parts). Although you should be able to find something at a hardware store, or Boneyard.

While you are at it Get a battery strap from year one..
you can see the strap in this shot..
I screwed around replacing the coolant tank and bolts and blah.. blah.. then picked up this strap and all the problems solved. The battery doesn't move.
