Default Tensioner bolt

So a family member of mine has a 1997 Nissan Sentra gxe (sp?). This car with A 1.6L motor has 2 belts. Well one belt blew and the other almost blew from debris flying around. So being the nice guy I am I said I would help her out. So I get the new main (first of two) belt on and go to tighten the pully and I get a surprise! The bolt is broken. I went to murrays and of course they dont have one, or anything close for that matter. I then called the stealership to find that no one in the USA has one and they are on back order. I think it is an M-8 with a 1.25 thread pitch. Any one know where I can get one as soon as possible?? Pic to come in a few mins.

Go to a REAL parts store. NOT MURRAYS.
Try a Napa, or Autovalue, can also try a local machine shop that builds motors, they should have something

murrays = the suck
the only thing i will buy there is wiper blades, and thats only because i can get them myself. anything they get or look up 80% of the time will be wrong.

if you were closer I would say come over and dig threw the bins here. I have hundreds of pounds of bolts I have saved over the years.
