Evening all. Me and my dad are rebuilding his 95 mustang with a 3.8 V6. When we took the engine down we bagged and labeled all the parts. We ordered all end parts and when we started to put the engine back together we found the main bearing bolts are missing somehow. We have called Ford and they can not get them anymore. Does anyone know where I can find some. None of the local auto parts can get them either.

We appreciate the pointer to corral. Since TTY bolts should not be reused it was going to be our last resort but will get a couple other things from there so thanks.
We did find a solution, both the Chrysler 300 and the Fiat 500 use the same bolt in the upper control arm, a M12x1.75x84 and the torque specs for their application is 35+90 and the specs for the Main Bearing Cap Bolts on our engine are 37+115-125 which are close enough I ordered some and we are going to use them.
