Uh if you dont have to use just an allen head...? And if thats a valve cover hold down stud that a T handle hold down screws on to...? I made my own by just cutting a piece of all thread and taking a hacksaw and cutting a slot for a reg slot screwdriver in one end...

There should be a shop that supplies fasteners and such, all types and sizes, to the industry near you.

Hydraulic shops are usually easy to find in the phone book (plus a good place to get any type of hose for cheaper, ie steel braded) and they'll probably know of a fastener supplier near by.

ARP. If its a piece of hardware for an engine, they make it. If they don't make it, simply tell them what you need and they'll make it in a few hours.
