Engine bolt sizes for 350 chevy

Hello guys i am sort of a rookie here for engine bolts. I am needing to get bolts for my new engine a 350 chevy gen 1 block. I have the head bolts and main bolts but I need bolts for the the oil pan intake and all the other things.I have no gm dealer where I live. What I am having a hard time is finding the lenghts of all these bolts. I don't want to have to pay over 40 bucks for a complete engine bolt kit and spent that much more for shipping. I just want to go to my local hardware store and get some good quality grade 8 bolts. Can anyone help me out here.
Thanks Eric

Hopefully these two pages will show up well enough to read...

EDIT- pretty blurry, hopefully someone else has a list. If you have hypersnap or a similar program, it will enlarge well enough to read.

You don't need grade 8 bolts for and oil pan or timing cover. The pan bolts are 1/4"-20 except the ones in the corners they are 5/16"-18.. Timing cover is also 1/4"-20. Intake bolts are 3/8"-16.

Hey thanks again for your help appreciated. What kind of book is there that lists all that info anyways? Is there something I can buy at say advance auto parts or autozone? I do thank you for the help. This will save me some time of searching endless webpages.
Eric

Advance should have that stuff in the Mr Gasket line in small kits. If not they can get it or buy it from Summit. I see you are from Ohio.

The pages I tried to copy are in David Vizzard's how to rebuild your SMALL-BLOCK CHEVY, HP Books #66.

Costs $9.95- that said, there are prolly more up-to-date books out there. This book is from 1978.
