So, 4 years ago I had my escort start having transmission problems. I enlisted a few friends to help me pull it (I'd just had back surgery). I did my best to keep bolts together with whatever they came out of, but I'm stalled on these last few. There are 6 thicker bolts, looks like they have mtf 9.8 on them. 6 nuts, and a few other smaller bolts. We pulled out the trans , cross member, cv shafts, air box, starter, battery and tray, also had to pull apart some of the brake/wheel hub assy. if that helps.

I dont have a chart of what goes where. When I rebuilt my escorts, usually after having the transmission out of the car, I just kept bolting things back together with whatever sized bolts had not been used up yet. The number on the top of the bolt is just the metric markings for the toughness of the alloy of the bolt, which i usually ignored. I always had the mystery of which bolts held the trans to the engine, since there are 8 or 9 of them, and they are of different lengths. The longest bolt in your last photo looks like the "through bolt" for either the front motor mount (next to the middle of the radiator), or what Ford calls the 'transmission mount' at the back side of the transmission.
The only thing I had to be careful about, was having the fine thread nuts versus the normal threaded nuts when reassembling.
