Default Where to find Seastar extended bolts for helm pump?

Anyone know where I can get extended bolts for a seastar helm pump? I recently installed HH6541 and need extended ones of #2 in the pic below (notice #9 threads into it, so it's not a common bolt).

Is it a cored glass dash? If so, drill a larger hole (just bigger than your socket) into the coring on the backside of the dash without going completely through. Make sure the outer layer of glass is thick enough to not let the nut bottom out.

Thanks. I'll call them tomorrow. If they don't have it, I'll try a boltmaster coupling bolt.

I'll be surprised if they don't have them or at least can give you a solution. Those guys are experts in refurbishing steering systems and they were super friendly and helpful when I dealt with them. Good luck!
