Post Camshaft cap bolts/guides
So the other day I was replacing my valve stem seals. While torquing down the camshaft caps I broke one of the bolts. Usual song and dance to drill out the bolt and Easy-out the thing. But I also damaged the guide for that hole.

So I'm looking for a place online or otherwise that would have the bolts and guides.
I've checked Rockauto and done some google searches but didn't find anything.
Anyone know?

So, I stopped through the local hardware store and picked up some 6mmx40mm 10.9 grade bolts and a set of washers. They may not be as pretty as the old ones but they felt more solid while I was torquing them down. They're tempered bolts and should be good. I'll pull the valve cover in about 500 miles and check the torque on them to be safe (Do the head bolts around that time too).
