57 generator mounting bracket

For my 57, does anyone know the correct length of the two bolts that hold the generator mounting bracket to the front end of the block? The two I pulled out are different lengths, and I'm suspicious. I can find no reference to these bolts in any illustration manual or parts catalog. And I'm not confident enough that I'm reading the Ford Text Manual correctly.

If they fit when in use they are likely correct. It is not unusual for there to be different length bolts in the front dress of an engine. If it was not broken don't fix it is my motto.

i restored an untouched 57 several years ago and if i remember right, there as a short and a longer bolt attaching the bracket. if i get a chance tomorrow i will check the one i have now.
