I don't recall the exact length of the top bolt, but it's much longer than the bottom bolt. My best guess is that it's a 3.5" long bolt (with thread only on the top 1.25").
I ended up having a guy put a helicoil in after my bottom bolt incident. It held all winter, and is still going strong. It should be much easier with the top bolt, although you are already experiencing that it's a lot of bolt to remove.
The moral of the story is that your hard work will pay off.
