hcompton Here this looks right if the reproduce the mount they will usally sell a bolt kit. The price stinks sorry first one in google. All else fails lookup the company that makes it and ask for replacement bolts Sometimes works.

Not sure but you could try to buy them as nos but i dont think they will be easy to find. Do you have a can of cylinder head bolts laying around? I bet one of them will be close. You can also try to weld nuts inside the mount and use two factory style bolts. Even on a clean restore it would be hard to spot. Make sure they are not going anywhere but should work if closed style mount. Open mounts you will be stuck finding the correct bolts or making somthing work.

Longest shoulders on most bolts are the mounts and head bolts. Can you maesure how long they would need to be. Some of the guys on the sight have lots of knowledge on parts and chevy tries to reuse every nut and bolt over and over again so they may just be a standard bolt.
