Help, Engine missing parts, questions

So I got my engine back from the Machinist. Its missing several parts.
I'm going to his shop tomorrow to see if he has them tucked away some where.

If not Can any one give me the specs on the following, so I can try ans source them if he cant find them:

Valve cover screws
Harmonic balancer nut
the screws for the valve rocker retainers
The flywheel bolts
pressure plate bolts
Thermostat housing bolts

I'm also missing:
Rockers
rocker retainers
New harmonic balancer
thermostat housing
3 head bolts

I'm really hoping these parts are some where in his shop.
I waited over a year and a half to get my stuff back!


Thanks

Edit, it is a 258. 1980 block and 1979 accessories. tin valve cover.

WOW, that's a lot of kinda hard parts to find. Harmonic balancer nut, flywheel bolts, 3 head bolts
pressure plate bolts.... should be replaced anyway. But you'll need the old ones to make sure you're getting the right new ones. They likely "walked" when somebody needed a bolt or 2. Sounds like an employees' buddy was working on a jeep!

No kidding, kind of put a stop to the rebuild!

I dont really want to pirate them from the engine I'm replacing, its fine except for some seals that dried out while it sat. I figured I'd replace it with the upgraded rebuilt engine, and sell the old one with its D20, and T150.
Cant sell it missing parts if I have to scavenge them for the new one.
