Dana 300 Yoke(?) Straps (Front Driveshaft)

When I was doing the Twin Shifter for my 300... I noticed that one of the straps that are on the T-Case that hold on the front Driveshaft are loose... its layered with goo and its been as cold as heck out lately... so I haven't really gotten a good look at it... either way I'm going to be changing the fluid in the 300 soon (if I can figure out what kind to put in it, but thats on another thread) and would like to get that fixed at the same time... problem is... from what I could tell, it doesn't look like a bolt or nut...(it actually seemd like a smooth stud, but like I said I haven't cleaned it off very well) ...what should fit on there?

It's a bolt. I've seen regular hex head bolts and those 12 point (I think) bolts with small heads. If it's covered in oil/dirt, it probably looks like a stud... but it's a bolt.

Ah, hopefuly it is one of those 12 point bolt heads... I was just fearing Torx (And thats something I REALLY don't want to strip!) Just thought I'd make sure, since AMC just decided to randomly strew those Torx pieces of @#%^!! around on Jeeps just to piss off anyone who might try working on it at a later date

It's like 5/16 socket or even 1/4".
The bolt head is smaller then the threaded area.
