YJ needs some CJ help

Please see the attached photo, I have been searching on Google and the forum for help on this.
I have two missing bolts on my 90YJ . all I keep finding is help with the power steering bracket for the serpentine belt and mine has the v-belt just like its older brother the CJ.
My son said I need to ask CJ people.
I searched power steering pump bracket for CJ and it is the same as mine.

All I need is the size bolts that are circled.

I'm pretty sure they are 3/8-16 x 3/4"L Indented Hex Head bolts.

In situations like this, I usually just rummage thru my spare bolts bin to determine the correct size and thread count. Once I figure that out, the length is usually pretty easy to determine.

I tried that route and believe it or not did not have one bolt that would work,
I think I will have to clean the threads with a Tap.

I had an issue with one of those bolts on my CJ. the best solution is what you just said, use the tap and you will be good to go. I used a bottoming Tap to be sure the new bolt would sit tight.

In this application it may be best to not use a cutting tap but a thread chaser/restorer to determine thread pitch.

I find this tool very useful in SAE and Metric................

in combination with a thread gauge like these.

I got mine at Fastenal.

Thanks,
I forgot, We have a set of the thread gauges from when my son went to Penn college, and I have the plastic thing I got it from work.
