Did you guy's know?

I'm sure a lot of you guy's already know this but I sure didn't until I did some checking, See I had a bolt that the PO kinda roughed up a little using the wrong tool on it so I wanted a new bolt, now the bolt I'm referring to is the crank cover bolt on the back of the engine that has a seal in it[o'ring], Now here's what I didn't know but now I do, the bolt on the final gear is the same bolt, and the bolt on clutch cover is the same bolt cover too...Wow I did not know that...If I were a betting man I'd say it would fit in the timing site hole on top of the engine and the oil filler hole too..I'm writing this in case someone is looking for that bolt they will now have three opinions or maybe more... :D It makes sense they would use 25mm threads on all these holes, why change? Please ignore this if you already knew this...I sure didn't...
