Valve cover bolt replacement
I'm looking for somebody who can tell me where to get a replacement valve cover bolt. Are they just standard size bolts I can find at a hardware store? None of auto parts stores around here have any information on them oh, much less any in stock. I need to at least know the size of the bolt so I can get thread repair inserts, since I stripped out two of the holes putting the valve covers back on yesterday. Stupid me didn't pay attention to inch pounds vs foot pounds,so I quickly stripped out to of the holes and then snapped the third bolt. I have a hunch that the car is on its last legs anyway, so I'm tempted to just make this the last straw that sends it to the graveyard.
