Bolting up my water pump, this bolt and the opposite site seam to not get a bite.im thinking aluminum water pump must be a little thicker and just go get longer bolts. That's with two gaskets and backing plate, anyone run into this?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but I think the amount of threads is 1 1/2 times the dia. of the bolt.

My Edelbrock aluminum water pump bolted up just fine with the stock bolts.
