Or you could go to Clarks Corvair online catalog or Corvair Underground  (in 
OR) to get a set... for just under $6 ea. Clark's #C787.  Or join the local 
club and someone will have some.. And there are VERY active folks in your 
Homeport area (Everett, WA?) in the NW.

I've been told GM picked a bolt size that wasn't readily available, so 
people didn't put the wrong bolt in there.  Probably not a place you want a 
grade 3 bolt.
