Question about AX-15 Transmission Bolts

Now I know a lot of people have had issues with getting the 2 external Torx bolts on top of the engine, and I have already taken the engine out and am in the process of putting another engine in. I seemed to have lost the bolts that are around the rest of the bell housing that connects the bell housing to the engine. Does anybody know what size and thread pitch they are? I know that the starter bolts are also two different sizes. If anybody could give me any input it would be greatly appreciated!

Starter bolts are M10 x 1.5 x 28mm into the starter and 3/8" -16 x 1.75". Threads for the housing aren't shown in the parts list but they are SAE.

Thanks for the info. Are they a survival length? I've looked at Lowe's and home depot and other hardware stores but I see the metric bolts are either 25mm or 30mm and the SAE bolts are 1.5 or 2.00 inches, nothing in between

Don't know what's meant by survival threads but buy longer bolts and shorten the threads if necessary. Shorter bolts may not have enough thread engagement
