I normally would not try to answer a question that Im not familiar with, but after seeing no responses as of yet, I did my best to find a schematic of your front cab mounts, which I did and posted it below, however I do not have the text that goes along with it to ID any part. I'm sure if you post which bolt you are talking about , someone with the accompanying text, will be happy to ID the proper bolt length, threads, etc. Sorry, I know this does not answer your question, but at least you can now ID the bolt by part #.. that you are referring to.

I tried to look through the text catalog to find the bolt but couldn't. Normally you have a major part to reference. The rear mount is in section 53 (5360) so and it has the bolts there. But this one doesn't have that.

That really bugs me. Hopefully someone that knows what their doing will tell us.

On a side note, did you notice their specifications for the rubber parts on the front mount? "Improvise from tire carcass or similar material" I wonder how they did it in the factory?

If memory serves me correct, I had to use a 5" bolt from the local hardware to get things lined up and snugged down. Once everything was tightened down, I was able to go back and remove the longer bolt and replace with the shorter bolt. The rubbers stay expanded until they are snugged down. There is also nothing wrong with leaving the longer bolt in place just make sure it is a grade 5 or higher. Enjoy, cab mounts take some fiddling.

Where here is how I see it. I'm far from an expert though and these are pictures of the original parts.
Page 110 of the mid fifty catalog seems to show things well.

The rubber looks to be gone from the cup, which after 60 years is to be expected.

Just to show the original bolt was ~3 inches.
