Looks like I am missing a few header bolts. Do they need to be a certain material like grade 8 steel? Can these usually be picked up individually, or must I buy them in a set?

How about intake/thermostat bolts? I know there tend to be rust/corrosion issues with those? Will stainless bolts from a typical hardware store suffice?

I need to get these things straightened up so I can start the motor up and see if I solved the anti-freeze leak :yes:

exhaust bolts should be grade8.... header bolts are commonly 1.25"..

yes stainless bolts from the local hardware will do just fine for the water neck.... be sure to use a nickel sulfide anti seize
