Hi,
I have a 92 f350 xlt series with a 460 7.5L. We are having trouble with the water pump, what size bolts go where. If y’all could help out that would be great.
I’m pretty sure this picture I found is the water pump we have.

when such an unfortunate event occurs, or you get yourself into a basket case situation, temporarily install the part using the shortest bolt in the shortest mounting boss or the longest bolt in the longest boss. For your water pump you should have at least 4 or 5 threads (turns of the bolt) engagement. Trial fit all the other bolts to get the same amount (or as close as possible) of thread engagement. Be sure all the bolts contact the top of the boss or bracket before bottoming out (you DO NOT want bolts bottoming out). If it was a bucket of bolts you got with the project, then measuring devices enter the picture - and good luck with that...
