need source for replacement Ford 351 engine bolts

In trying to replace the water pump on a 1996 Clubwagon with a 351 (5.8L)
engine, one of the longer water pump bolts siezed in the block and timing
chain cover. I need to find a replacement as well as the the threadsize (so
I can order the appropriate Helicoil).

Can anyone identify the Ford part number (or a website that I could
explore) that will provide this bolt?

The bolt is about 5-6" long, and appears to be a 5/16th inch thread. it has
a hex head located approximately 80% along its length. From the hex head to
the end of the bolt is threaded for attachment of a bracket for one on the
hoses on the passenger side of the engine near the water pump.

Any help would be appreciated.

Check the thread on one of the other bolts-either going to be a
5/16X18 or M8X1.25. If you can't find the correct fastener, all thread
and a nut might get you by. If you have suitable equipment you could
braze two bolts head to head.

..3.8L uses a lot of these type fasteners but they are metric...
