Hey all,

I just broke the head off one of bolts holding the Throttle position sensor onto the throttle body and I went to a napa parts and a hardware store and nobody had a replacement.

Anyone have any idea where I can get 2 new bolts?

I would imagine that any older GM CAR WITH TROTTLE BODY would have the same bolt . Do you have a junk yard near bye ? I do and have found quite a few cross- over parts for a lot of my older cars and trucks . If not do you have a thread count tool , get one their cheap. Count the threads per inch and overall length and diameter . And buy a different style of bolt . Just a suggestion , good luck dan
