I was really curious about a stock bolt, because the local purchase bolt isn't shouldered. I have been meaning to pull the mount and double-check the bolt for any marring from engine movement, but haven't really gotten around to it yet. Maybe this weekend in the shop...
The bolt did protrude past the actual motor mount about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch. It held fine. I have since installed the MS3 bolt, as I thought the stock Focus bolt was making contact with something, but it turns out it wasn't. So it's fine to use.
