Default Sheared starter drive bolt

I went down to the shop after work to do the usual battle with this new to me AA cut down truck. Before I could deal with the issues I wanted to address The starter spun but didn't turn the flywheel... So I started it with the crank..... But I want electric start. I pulled the starter and found a sheared off bolt. My wife was due home in 20 minutes ... A bolt had sheared off in the drive. 12 v conversion done by PO ,,, any surprise?> Looking at the green bible I see the drives are similar. I have a half dozen Flathead v8 starters here in a heap. Are the bolts the same? Do I* need to order some starter drive bolts or do I already have some? Wife and I in the middle of dinner now............
