Flywheel Bolts

I'm missing two of the flywheel bolts from a 2 litre engine I'm rebuilding. I think I gave them to a needy local Alfisti a few years ago. Does anyone have a couple laying around you could sell me cheap? These are the big bolts that have the washer made into them. There six bucks apiece from Classis Alfa in England. Do you experts think I should replace them all with new bolts?

I have some. PM me your address.

I switched to ARP bolts after shearing a set of OEM bolts when I selected 3rd gear instead of 5th at 7000 in 4th.

Thank you Ed, for the replacement bolts. I'm a little closer to having everything I need to allow the engine reassembly.

I believe the Flywheel Bolts should be replaced once they have been torqued (when new), and then loosened when disassembling. I did this for the Montreal which have a very unique size - 9.0mm Ended up getting them from Hackner in Germany.

Bolts can be reused provided they have not been torqued beyond the elastic limit which is at least 95 ft-lb for these bolts.
The problem with new bolts is knowing the quality. If you can get bolts that were made to AR's engineering specification by a company with a robust quality assurance program then go for it. ARP make suitable bolts here in the USA. Maybe there is someone else?
