CLOSED - Bolt attachment for a Southdown steering guard

I am attaching an older* Southdown steering guard. I see where it uses the existing bolts to attached to the underside. However, one of the attachment sites does not have a bolt in it. When facing the D90 front, this is the furthest back left side.

Does anyone know the bolt size and required strength rating as I have to buy this thing?
My wife has informed me I either attach everything to the D90 or she will toss it.

* I think it is an older version cause I did a word search and saw the Southdown Chris had for sale back in October 03 and mine is way different.

Angry frozen bolt

New question:
See the photo. This is the bolt from the underside, right. It is frozen.
Is there a trick, like to remove weight somehow from the bolt?
Or should I just really wack it with a hammer??

I have the same setup, but my SouthDown came with all the hardware necessary (except the steering arm bolts that are already in place). I'd figure a 5" grade 8 1/2" bolt with washer, lock washer, and nylock nut ought to do you just fine.

On the steering arm bolt that is stuck, lots of penetrating oil (PB Blaster is best, imo) and then brace the bolt head (visible in your photo) and turn the nut on the other side with a socket, 1/2" ratchet and a breaker bar if necessary. An electric or pnuematic impact gun will spin that jewel right off.

Good luck
