Yes. Same thing happened when EK98 was a ratchet dyslexic at my house.

I used two water pump pulley bolts. Anything with a 10mm head will be fine.

Had the same problem on Tony'* car. Just go in the other room and grab a spare off your new manifold.

Another thought from when I was looking for a bolt one night. Autozone/Napa around me have great bolt selections.
