Does anyone know where to source the OEM bolt? While trying to get this engine timed, I ended up stripping one when my engine stand moved on me :(

I called the Ford dealer and they said they are NLA?

Thanks for any help,

Go for the ARP bolts.

will remove the T-55 and be a stronger bolt

Those bolts are nice but appropriately overpriced to match.
