Just use some smaller bolts/nuts with some washers. Thats what i did and it worked just fine for over a month.

i was thinking about that too, but i have no clue how long my engine is going to be on the stands for. thought they might bend over time.

LOL, no worries. I used some scrap all-thread (much too small probably) cut to ~6'' lengths and some nuts and washers I found laying around the house. It held up fine with a fully assembled engine for probably a month, maybe more. It was thin weak looking all thread too, maybe 1/2''. And the washers and nuts werent all that strong looking either. Held up how ever much the engine weighs, maybe 250-300lbs? Heavier than it looks, I can say that much. Im too ghetto to go out and spend $20 on fasteners and ****, when I have TONS of left overs laying all over the place.

Id say go buy a several foot long piece (only need maybe 6'' x4, or thats what it was for me anyway, not sure how your stand is) of the largest all thread that will fit through the holes on the block, 8 nuts and 16 washers to fit the all thread, cut to length and bolt her up. Be much easier than finding correct size nuts and bolts. Handy old timers tip, when cutting something like all thread, ALWAYS leave the nuts on the length you are cutting, or you will never be able to thread them on because the threads of the all thread (lot of thread) will be messed up from cutting... the threads. That way you can spin them off and straighten up the threads...
