The major vendors will have the count for each if you look it up whether its peachparts or the haus of autos in arizona.

What I found was that:
1) All or nearly all of the bolts from the head of my om602 2.5 met the FSM guidelines for re-use.
2) I mail ordered a set anyway, and when they came I found that the new bolts had a wider head than the old ones and about all bolts that go into the exterior of the head (about half) wouldn't fit into the close counterbore that the old ones did, so I returned them and talked to the vendor QA.
3) I drove to the MB of buffalo parts counter and ordered a set. They came in, same deal.
4) I bought a cheap bench grinder and and ground the heads down a touch in diameter and finished the job.
5) Did I mention that all or nearly all bolts met criteria for reuse? WTF was I thinking?
