Need a bolt size please

I am looking for the bolt size in lenght and thread for the valve cover on a 4.0. I was replacing my gasket after the Calico run and it appears that I am missing one... Maybe that is why I have a leak. Thanks in advance for any info you may have.

Jeff

Most Hardware stores have Metric (??) bolts and screws these days...Unless you have a dealership close by.

Pull one of the other bolts out and take it with ya.....Match it up. "BH"

Just make sure you didn't drop it into the engine when you had the valve cover off...you're SURE it wasn't there before? If so, then like BH says - just cruise over to your local hardware store and pull one of the bolts, take it in, and match it up. That's what I'd do. Good luck - just be sure it's not rattling around in your engine!
