MISSING Head Bolts....ouch.....64 tempest

ok i removed my a/c from my car and sent the a/c specefic head bolts with the unit..not remembering this.. i started my car and could not figure out the crazy sound coming from my motor..like a bad exhaust leak coming from the valve cover/intake/head area...then i noticed water coming from one of the head bolt holes...so i shut it off... its the dipstick head bolt and the a/c bracket head bolt both towards the front of the motor.. did i hurt anything by doing this? where can i get those headbolts? engine did sound good though 1964 tempest 326 2barrel..any body got some spare head bolts. can i get these anywhere? what size? length?

the dip stick is usually bolted on with a exhaust manifold bolt and the AC bolt probably just goes through the water jacket in the head.The parts guy at any N.A.P.A. parts store should be able to get you what you need.You may need to change the exhaut manifold gasket to seal the leak.I dont deal with pontiac's much so I dont know exactly what you need.

When I run into something like this, I usually take a trip to the bone yards and start looking. Identifying the exact bolt over the internet can be difficult at times.

Although you may get lucky if you call a dealership, they have helped me before.

86 the idea of going to the parts store or dealer,
if your looking for a quick fix, go to the junk yard...

the head bolts off of any 64-77 pontiac engine will work, just make sure you pull the right ones, theres 3 diff sizes.

www.opgi.com sells headbolt sets as well as summit and other places..

the dipstick tube was mounted to the AC bracket, but can be relocated now that it has no ac...

you may have warped the heads, depending...
if it was my car i would pull the heads off and check them, mabe even magnaflux em... but if your lookin for the quick fix...
throw some bolts in it and do a compression check.

and next time you post a thread aboput a pre 65 pontiac... post some damn pics too!!!!
