    I'm looking for the longer of the two long bolts for the power steering pump. The one that fits into the adjustment slot, appears to be between 4 and 5 inches long. Thanks, Tom

    Its just a shouldered 3/8 x 16 bolt. Go to any hardware store and get what you need.

    I've tried Lowes and HD, the 3/8-16 x 5" grade 5 and 8 aren't fully threaded. I can trim the 5" but it would only have minimal threads. I was hoping to find something original before I resorted to a custom cut bolt.

    Have you checked McMaster Carr? They have so much a purchasing guy told me once if they don't have it you don't need it. Not quite accurate, but close.:)

    They have fully threaded 4-5 in bolts. Could also get a piece of threaded rod and make a stud. Piece o cake.
