or possibly someone on here could send you some?
i've replaced them before and the places I went never had the right length, of course I could get close enough to work with.

What you will find at the hardware store or anywhere else is that 1.25 thread bolts are hard to come by and impossible in any appreciable length. These bolts are rusty because they thread into the water passage on the heads. Coat them liberally with anti-seize compound

I found New Bolts made of Good Quality Material and with the Exact Measurements, at the Local Napa Store:

For hand power, a 1/2" copper fitting brush (plumbing section) is excellent for getting into tight areas (threads) and not as wimpy as a wire bristle tooth brush.
Those don't look that bad ..... ?

It is the biggest little hardware store in Seattle. This is where we save ourselves. The weekends always have European cars and bikes filtering in and out of the parking lot.

I ordered replacements from the Subaru dealership here in town, should be the same quality. I hope anyway....
I just felt like the ones I pulled out had to much pitting in them to be real trust worthy down the road. When it's been said on here that it is a b....tch to get them out if they break.
I've seen some bolts over the years that were less compromised fail, in different uses of course, my dad always told me that if it looked like it might fail...go ahead and replace it cause you probably will later anyway.

Nice, I bet they weren't $1.98 a piece:banghead:
IDK, have you priced long bolts at NAPA lately? I'll bet they cost more than the couple nickles one would expect to pay for bolts.
