water pump bolts

I have a 96 that is leaking coolant around the back of the timing chain cover, so I had to take the water pump off. The bolts are all rusted and unhappy. I've tried cleaning them, but it doesn't seem to help.
I asked the dealership [yes, I was desperate] but they said they couldn't get them for me.

Any idea where I might get another set? And how to prevent it from leaking again and having this happen twice?

Thanks!

Re: water pump bolts

Just take on of the bolts up to the local part store and have them match it. They usually keep a bunch of different size bolts in the back. Or try ACE.

Re: water pump bolts

These are the bolts with the heads at both ends...the really long ones.
Before my fruitless dealership foray, I tried both Oreilly's and the local fastener shop. These weird bolts don't come on the spinning display at the parts store...at least not in my area.
Can you think of any other place that might have them?

Thanks!

Re: water pump bolts

Your best bet will probably be a salvage yard or you could try craigslist. See if someone is parting out car.
