Valve Cover

So I was putting my valve cover back on last night and snapped a bolt. I bought a temp replacement at Home depot but when it gets to a certain point it doesnt seem to tighten, just spin.

Anyone know where I can get replacements?

I have checked the usual:
Rock Auto

Nobody seems to carry them or get them.

Its a 89 XJ with the 4.0 I6

Local junk yard. The threads might be stripped, OR, you put a standard bolt in a metric hole.
