Replacing the 12E Torx bellhousing bolts

What should I replace those two Torex bolts with? Grade 8 hex bolt and washer? I was thinking there would be a replacement bolt set for the bellhousing but my search has come up empty. Thanks for the help

Asked & answered.

3/8"-16 thread, match length underhead. Hex head screws okeh, washers not strictly necessary (but not a bad idea, either.)

You'll find my accumulation of screw sizes on my site - start at www.kelleyswip.com/tech.html, and follow the links from there. Questions like this are why I've been trying to amass that data and get it all in one place...

(NB: SAE5 or SAE8 will work, as will CRES. You don't need massive strength in that location. I've also had good luck putting studs in those holes, but it can be a bit of an exercise getting the nuts started...)

Thanks! I was wondering if I had to use washers or not. Thanks again for the help.
