    Ace Hardware or any hardware store would have the bolts you'd need. My method is to take one of the bellhousing bolts with me to the hardware store to match up the size and threads, and just get a longer bolt to make it work with the engine stand. You'll want at least 4 sturdy bolts to hold an M60 safely, preferably grade 10.9.
