The link I posted is generic, not researched as specific to your application. Look at the bolts. They have a shoulder on them. I doubt you can find bolts like that at HD. Even if they are grade 8s.
Best bet is Ford if you want to be certain.
The a-hole in me wants to suggest that since the bent pressure plate finger does not bother you, why would rounded bolts be a problem? Got Vice-grips?

actually i could just weld a nut over the sripped out hex head.. or just weld the pressur eplate right to the flywheel! save a step all togeather!
