Default camshaft cap bolts

Does anyone happen to know the grade and thread size/bolt size of the bolts that hold down the camshaft caps? And if you know, would you happen to know where to find em? The last place I want to look is Lowe's since I want my cam to stay put, but I figured I'd ask here first incase someone knew.

Thanks,
Oliver

I go with junk yard bolts, that way you know they're right. Should be close to free too.

the bolts only take about 12 ft-lbs of torque. Any bolt with the right pitch and length should work for you.

I torques em all to 10 ft/lbs first and 1 of the 20 bolts snapped, in the head (gotta drill and extract) it must have been cross threaded, cause 10 ft/lbs is nothing at all. went to lowes and grabbed a few bolts. all too long so ill cut to length oh well. For the record they are about m6 x 1.0 x about 30

thanks though.

Wow. I've never snapped any bolt at 10 ft/lbs! That is very weird. Maybe I'm not as familiar with different bolt-types as I thought. lol
