Default can someone link me to 77 xlch ironhead base cylinder bolts?

Hey all -
So I ordered a set of rocker box replacement bolts and a set of cylinder head bolts for my 77 xlch ironhead rebuild from Colony on J&P. turns out the cylinderhead bolts don't include the base bolts, but having trouble finding a set that only has the 8 base bolts rather than the whole shabang, anyone have a link to just the base cylinder bolts?

You can't find bolts because OEM they use nuts on studs, to preserve the case threads.

I don't think you can fit a long enough bolt through the cylinder (cooling fins in the way).

Get a stud kit and the Colony small head (7/16) nuts.

They don't call me Ironhead Rick just because I'm hard headed

Thanks for the responses all - Didn't realize nobody makes a base bolt for them. Studs it is!
