GT40 Upper Intake ???'s

Hi,
I lost the 2 short bolts that bolt the upper intake to the lower intake on my GT40 Intake off a 96 Explorer. Does anyone know the length of the 2 short bolts?
I have all 4 of the long ones.
Also...were the 2 short bolts threaded all the way to the head ?
If not...about how much of the bolt is threaded. Need to buy the bolts at the hardware store so I need the info.
Thanks for the help. Dale

They whole bolt doesn't have to threaded... my guess is the top 1/2" isn't threated
Bolt is 5/16 X 18 X 2"... diameter.. thread pitch.. length

The whole thing isn't threaded. Like... 1/4 of the length is just the shank. It's been FOREVER since I did a pushrod intake though so don't go by that as gospel.

Sounds good. Just make DAMN sure you torque it properly. Those bolts don't have a very high torque value and you will blow out the aluminum threads if you just hand tighten.
