ignition switch retaining screws

Does anyone know the correct size/thread pitch for the two little screws that hold in the ignition switch? I'm replacing my switch and the existing one only has one screw and it's a bit smaller diameter and a course thread anyway. I'd like to get two screws that are the right size.

No the tiny little screws that hold the switch in place

Thanks. Home Depot didn't have anything close so will try ace hardware in a bit. There are threads in the switch housing which look fine threaded to me. Are you saying they look coarse? Can you take a (better) picture of one?

Thanks for checking. I didn't make it to the hardware store today, but maybe tomorrow. Would you mind checking the length too please?

I wouldn't be able to tap both sides without removing the shear bolts so doubt I'll go that route. Will give getting the right screws the old college try.

It appears a 2-56 x 3/8 is the best fit. Thanks!

I just did this job tonight and one of the screws caused interference inside the ignition switch. Just thought I would mention that. Thanks for taking the time to figure out the size. I think the ones on my truck are longer than 3/8. Which could explain the problem.
