Bolt size for Diff?

I am installing QT diff guards with safari gard rock gard. My problem is that bolts are not long enough for the both of them. I went to Lowe's to some longer bolts. The bolt size I thought would match up the best was a 10 / 1.25, that didnt work. So, what is the correct size for the two bolt the back and bottom of the diff?

I'm not sure the exact thread...I know that they are British standard...3/8 x 20 maybe...I've never been able ro find replacements. For repairs or accessory mounting I usually drill the holes oversize and tap to 7/16 UNF.

Tap it to 7/16 like Rob said. I do not even drill before tapping it the larger size, but I am pendy.

The larger bolt with coarser threads will suit your needs better.

legend in my own mind

Advice is only as good as the person applying it--
Don't make me give you bad advice!

Lemons or lemonaide, whatever your taste provides.
