Default Rocker arm bolts

So we were installing our heads and pushrods and rockers tonight, and we managed to break one of the bolts (they're all stock.) We usually get all of our head bolts and such from ARP, but they don't seem to carry a replacement set, and I haven't had much luck on Google. Does anyone know a good source to get replacement bolts for the rockers?

Look online for a good grade stainless steel bolts,That should work as well as ARP but cheaper. You are probably using 5/16" bolts and they are weak take your heads to the machine shop and get them drilled and taped for 3/8" and you won't have this problem again.
