Proud? Are you saying too expensive. It's a hard to source bolt. Might have to "pony" on up the cash....Read this thread.. 67827-What- size-bolt-for-the-belt-tensioner

unless you have a pull n save junk yard handy, you are probably stuck with the dealer. unfortunately, some parts are "dealer bound"

Yes, ridiculously expensive. Had experience buying bolts through dealer. Local dealer charged $10.00 per bolt for 6 clutch bolts for 90 stang. I actually "ponied" up and paid the price because hey, I needed the bolts right. Later after beating myself up for a few days I went back to the dealer and talked them into refunding half the price.
