Default Engine Bolts

Hope someone can help me out here...

I have an 86 Evo engine mounted in a Paughco frame it was a mocked up roller when I got it.

Some of the engine bolts slide in and out and/or are to long for the spot they are in and some bolt wont budge at all.

Is there a list of what size/length stock engine bolts are? or a place I can order stock engine mounting bolts?

I tried searching on here..but have had no luck...

thanks

The bolts should be about 3/4 of an inch longer than the width of the engine casing boss where the bolt goes through...maybe half an inch at most...when bolted up the end of the bolt is flush with the outside face of its nut.
