Default Rear Motor Mount Bolts

Just sorting out some bolts to install the rear motor mount to the flywheel housing . I have some that would do but are cross drilled for a lock wire and some plain.
Originally were they lock wired or with a lock washer . Just curious .

John in lovely locked down Spring Weather Suffolk County England .

Per RG/JS, Sec 1-9,
"The heads of the bolts were safety wired in various ways with 18 gauge plain or raven finished wire."
No mention of lock washers....

The rear engine mounts were bolted to flywheel housing with unfinished bolts AND lock washers and wired with 18 gauge wire which was plain or raven.

Research the following;
A-21207 Bolt - housing to rear engine support.
A-22330 Lock Washer
A-6402 Wire - engine support to flywheel housing support wire
.

Thank you all very much all is crystal clear . All my cars have lock washers and oddly enough not had any with wire . None are original so many motor changes over the years .

John in yet another glorious Spring Day we are heading for the warmest April on record and no Model A !!! Suffolk County England .
