Detail of interface between the nozzle extension and the rocket engine proper.

Apparently, there are 240 bolts which join the engine and its extension, but a number appear to be missing on this engine.

I own a bolt from an F-1 engine whose head is shaped very much like these, so I consider it likely that these are the original bolts.
