The new header I'm coming with does not come with new bolts and I'd rathern ot use the old ones because they are ugly

are the bolts i need available at HomeDepot or a autopart store?

If so, does anyone know the size/thread/length

Thank you!

Do a search for locking header bolts. I'd go with those.

I would go to the local autoparts store and specify new socket head cap crews in the correct length and thread pitch. They are less likley to round off and they will be very strong. Unless you know how to read the markings, you are taking a chance with anything else. Stainless steel would be best. In all honest, you might want to look into converting to a stud and nut combination as that will allow hanging the header more eaily.

Look at a farm supply store. Inn my experience they have the largest selection of bolts. Look for hardened (probably class 10.9) bolts in the correct size, length and pitch. Also look for a sturdy head.

I forget what one it is. I think it's M8 but forget the thread.
