Looking for the specs on the bolts that hold 240 fenders to inner fender, front clip, etc - Looks like a coarse M6 flange bolt but haven't been able to find an exact match anywhere.

Upper motor mount housing bolts which bolt to the block are 12mm head with M8 X 1.25 -these are the same size and length as the ball joint to strut housings bolts in a 240. The lower motor mounts are 17 mm. Sorry, I do not know the thread pitch for those.

From a 91' 240--

The two Ignition lock cylinder bolts are M8-1.25 X 30mm (If you don't care about security)

Belly pan flange bolts: M6-1.0x 20mm. 1/4" washers will work in a pinch.

It's M8-1.25 x 22mm grade 8.8. It's the same bolt as the ones used to hold the oil pump to the block.

Automotive OCD alert.
Have been replacing some vacuum hose on 240/740/850/940.
Fpr has 5mm port
Evap canister ports on redblock throttle body has 4mm and 8mm diameter hoses.
850 uses plenty of 5mm vacuum hose too. Fpr, hose to boost gauge. Forgot the size I used for the turbo stuff, iirc the fittings are 6mm. Replaced those years and years ago and the original stuff was already in very ugly condition (2010?).

For OEM look and feel, Gates fuel hose with fabric braided cover works excellent. DIN 73379 typ B to be exact, the stuff found on carbs and diesel injection as leak line - I used half a millimeter smaller internal diameter for a snug fit. And to complete this little job some ABA 'mini W1' or 'mini W4' hose clamps are a nice finishing touch.
The flashy silicone stuff attracts rodents and one small tear and they rip in two. This stuff is much stronger and doesn't look out of place. Just my 0.02 € for what has proven to work for me.
