I'm not defending dealerships by any means, but in almost 30 years of WORKING at them,,,, I can guarantee we've/they've NEVER stocked 302 intake bolts. When a vehicle comes in that needs one, we usually get them from a vendor, or one of the dealerships 'special places' to get one of those items.
I've NEVER heard of anyone AT a dealership needing a complete set.
Again, one of those things, whereas, if the dealership doesnt sell at least a couple ever so often, IT is not ordered/reordered. There'd have to be a sign of IT being a sellable/marketable item to even be stocked.
I mean, I DON"T even try and purchase stuff like that there. That's what Scummit and Jegs is for........
Oh, and if/whenever I need a special bolt, I usually head down to the John Deere store, and go thru their HUGE assortment of hardness/lengths of bolts, then when I'm NOT in a rush, I order from Jegs/whomever, the proper bolts for later install...........My .002
