I am looking for a different bolt material to secure a guard to an cast iron exhaust manifold. The current grade 8 steel fasteners snap off when you turn them out, or will loosen and fall out. Manifold temps are about 600degF. Any recomendations for something better?
I see 309/310 as well as 316/317 Stainless Steel being recommend.
