This post should be stickied.Okay I meant to post this earlier. Timing cover / water pump bolts. They always corrode and break. Mustang bolt kits aren't right for the trucks. I can tell you the picture I'm attaching is someone else's (F150 forum) and I'm pretty sure it's a 351. I do know there were differences in the bolt sizes he posted - so I'll post what I measured off two different stock '96 Bronco 302 engines and what I ordered from Bolt Depot.
FYI I ordered Grade 5 zinc coated bolts for timing cover, water pump, intake manifold, block off plugs for the Thermactor holes in the heads, longer bolts for mating up engines / bellhousing and other odds and ends plus washers and extras in just about everything... @ $25 shipped from BoltDepot.com

All bolts 5/16-18
A = 2" bolts - no needs for studs.
E = 2.25"
F = 4" bolt
G = 4" bolt
H = 2.65"
I = the long stud with the smooth end for mounting the PS / AC bracket on
J = 5.1" stud - but no need for a stud, bolt will do.
Keep in mind - if you have a '96 302 you have an OEM CPS / misfire sensor that the timing pointer mounts on studs on two of these bolts. I'm using bolts - I'm keeping the pointer and ditching the CPS / misfire sensor since I've got a '96 engine going in a '95 Bronco
Keep in mind I ordered extras and I also ordered new lower intake bolts
