Change lags to bolts/nuts

I'm restoring an '86 37. Has anyone replaced their motor mount lag bolts with machine thread bolts and nuts? I'm not sure how I would get to the underside to access the nuts, but lag bolts can strip out after time.

Thanks,
Jeff

My motor mount holes seem to be in good shape. I just like through bolting better than lag bolts. That said, does anybody know how long the originally installed lag bolts are supposed to be? Just wondered if previous owners have installed longer lag bolts already.

Thanks,
Jeff

'86 37 Refurb

Hi all, still refurbing. I finally got the motor mount lag screws out (or most of them). Thank goodness for Unscrewums! On the replacement lag bolts, should I go back in with 316 Stainless or Silicon Bronze?
