compressor/idler/timing cover bolt

ok... I was changing belts and notice a bold in a bracket missing. I cant figure out if its broke off or just out. The bracket holds the pivot bolt for altenator as well as brackets for compressor/idler pulley. I will post a photo. the bold looks to go through the bracket and into the timing cover and into the block.... the missing one is the closest to the fan pulley. I can run a punch far up in the hole but for the life of me, i cant get a bolt started. Without this, the integrity of the bracket fails and allows the altenator to get out of alignment. let me go get a pic so you can see. oh... 1985 cj7 I6

ok.. I hope you can see the photo. I suppose my question is... what size bolt fits? I would assume it is the same size as the bolt to the left in the same bracket. I have started some pita bolts before but nothing like this. Also, when I run that rod up in the hole, I think that I feel threads

The missing bolt is where the welding rod is inserted
