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.

Here's the Mopar part.

https://www.moparpartsgiant.com/part...w~6502343.html

From the parts catalog it's:

06502343 16 EGE SCREW, Hex Head, M6x1x17,
Cylinder Head Cover Attaching

So an Metric M6x1 thread pitch that's 17mm long. The M6x1 is the important part for your Heli-Coil sizing. Are you sure there's enough material on the cylinder head to be able to drill/tap for a heli-coil?

I am not sure, how do I tell? I've never used heli coils before.

Better check with a parts store. I can't really help you with that decision.

Here's a M6x1 Heli-Coil kit on Amazon. You'll also need to buy a 1/4" drill bit if you don't already have one. The kit doesn't include it.

https://www.amazon.com/Helicoil-5546.../dp/B0002KKPXK

So you'll need enough material in the head for a 1/4" hole for the threading of the Heli-Coil insert.
