Valve Cover bolts

Does anyone have a part number for the valve cover bolts for a 97 ford f-250 7.3L? I lost two when I was changing my glow plugs. Thanks in advance.

It's a bolt guys. Take one of the remaining ones to a hardware store and get some more. Since the torque spec is in Newtons I'd start in the metric bin. Don't pay Ford prices for something made in Mexico.

Does anyone know off hand the torque specs and if I should put it a silicone gasket maker or some sort when re-installing the valve covers?
