Puting new pistons and crank in a ford 8n and I did this at my local high school and somebody stole 1 of the head bolts for the engine. But just 1 probly throw it across our shop at somebody... As for the question Is the bolts used to hold the head on a certain grade or a special bolt or can i go to the local true value and pick up a simple bulk bolt and put in the engine?

I purchased replacement head bolts from Fastenal. They were 7/16"-14X2&1/2" yellow zinc finish SAE j429 Grade 8 Hex Cap Screws Part#0115163. The was cost $0.896/each. All the head bolt holes were open into the water jacket in the three 8Ns I have rebuilt. If any hole looks blocked dig around and see if it is not just years of corrosion. I used a washer only because the head on the new bolt was not as big as the original and I liked the look. The washer from Fastenal was a 7/16" yellow zinc finish SAE Tru-Hardened flat washer Part# 1133816. The cost was $0.1912/each. I used Teflon paste seal on all bolts. I did not cut anything off any of the bolts.

The OEM bolts are 7/16-14 x 2-3/8" long. A common 7/16-14 x 2-1/2" grade 8 cap screw will work just fine. Because it is slightly longer make sure it is used in one of the holes that go through into the water jacket.
