Bolens 824 Electric Starter Mounting Bolts

Hello everyone, I just acquired a Bolens 824 snowblower from a friend that he hadn't had running for a couple of years. I'm giving the whole thing a once over to get it running for the winter, and right now I'm hung up on one easy thing: it came with a Tecumseh 33329C electric starter motor, but it wasn't mounted to the snowblower itself and the mounting bolts are missing.

Can anyone tell me what type of bolts are used to mount the starters to this particular machine? Thread size, length, etc.

Thank you!

My guess is 1/4" 20 about 3/4" long, depending on the thickness of the mounts on the starter, including a washer, and/or a lock washer, they might need to be 1" long. Buy both, start a bolt collection.

Do you have the long screws to mount the electrical connection? I haven't been able to find those at the hardware store.

I usually buy this kit instead, this guy usually has several sets available.:

Thanks for the insight, I picked up some 1/4-20 bolts and will give them a shot tomorrow.

I do have the two long screws: I'll try to ID them next time I'm at the hardware store if I can. Good to know those kits can be bought online for cheap, too!
