2.3l E-Fan help.

Hey guys i dont really need to much help. I went to install a e-fan and didnt think about the waterpump bolts. when i remove the mechanical fan and tighten them back in the water pump is stuck (bolts are to long), reason is because the mechanical fan has a spacer on it about 1/2 inch. does anyone know where i can get the waterpump bolts, but a little bit shortened?

Ace Hardware. I bought three there last month to replace broken water pump bolts for a 94 2.3L. You can get various lengths. Grade 8 is sufficient.
