Removed them when I was making room to replace the Intake Manifold Gasket. Both of them have the ends broken off and are stripped, so they can't be tightened completely.

Anyone have a part number? Idea how they broke to begin with?

Not sure on part numbers, but personally I'd run a tap through to clean/recut the threads and just buy any new bolt of the same material from the hardware store at the appropriate thread pitch and length. There's not a lot of material there, but there looks to be enough to oversize if needed.

I've never looked that closely, can a person run a hole clean through and just use a bolt with a nut, washer, and lock washer on the bottom side?

Ha, didn't see the diagrams in time and went with the "go to the hardware store" advice. Threads seemed dirty which caused issues, but I got it figured out. You can get a washer on the bottom left side, but not the right (as far as I could tell).

Hardware store advice worked out fine, just doesn't look pretty.
