    Some of the heads as well as length varies. The critical part though is the diameter and threading (TPI). V/r Shawn

    Threads are the main thing, if you have a tap/die set if has a thread gauge you can use that to see what TPI it is.
    Or if yo have a bunch of old bolts just try some and see.
    Then if you have a real hardware store, you can see if they have that thread/size in their bolts section.
    You make shift some bolts or machine screws if you get the right TPI and length and have a lathe handy.
