Default Engine Support Bracket Bolts ???

I'm trying to help a friend via Long Distance that is trying to reassemble a "basket case" PT Cruiser (2001 or 2003).

He's confused about the bolt holes for the Engine Support Bracket and where they line up. The Timing Belt covers are on. Are the marked images labeled #1,#2,#3 the mounting holes for the Engine Support Bracket?

I can't remember if the locations marked as #1 is the also the Timing Belt Tension bracket hole and the hole marked #2 is also the Water Pump bolt hole?

To mount the Support Bracket, it looks like you need some long bolts... he says there are already short bolts installed in #1 and #2, not long enough to be used to mount the Support Bracket into #1 and #2 (won't reach). They may have used the short bolts just to install the Water Pump and Tensioner (for setup)... don't know. Didn't come with long bolts (if needed, anyone know the size?).

Thanks.

the locations marked as #1 isn't the Timing Belt Tension bracket hole, as it's already installed in another hole per photo

The hole marked #2 passes thru the Water Pump

You're correct.

You have the litens tensioner pictured, I have 0 experience with them- Just ask you friend to place bracket against engine, it would be rather obvious if all lines up correctly.

A handy reference is the Factory Parts Manual- There's a link in my signature to Chrome's collection - It should give you the size of bolt (along with Mopar part number)

I'd likely have some for cheap if he's in a real bind.

Well i downloaded the Parts Manuals for 01-04 and this seems like the only part (Engine Support Bracket) they skipped over... what are the odds

In one of the diagrams they label the T55 bolt but no where else are the three Support Bracket bolts illustrated.
