Water pump bolt source

Could anyone point me to a source for a kit for the water pump bolts on a '78 CJ5 304?

Or does anyone have the specs?

I've managed to torque the heads off trying to replace the water pump.

Alloyboltz has a nice amc v8 bolt kit. Give them a call I'm sure they can help you out with a just a water pump kit if you'd like. If you just want the specs I can get them tomorrow.

I contacted Alloyboltz and they have the water pump bolts for $28.00 + shipping.
But the saga continues. At least half the bolts won't come out. Eazout not helpful. So, the next step, I guess is to drop the oil pan, take off the timing chain cover and drill them out. It was about due for an oil change anyway. Always fun.

I went to change out my water pump last September. Still not done drilling out bolts. I did however, end up replacing the timing cover, timing gear, rebuilding heads, steering, etc., etc., etc. I'm still drilling out bolts...
