Default What Size are the bolt from the oil pan to the timing cover?

i ripped the engine down a while ago, but work picked up so i didnt have time to reassemble it and i lost the three bolts that go through the oil pan into the timing cover, im going to have to buy replacements but id like to know the size so i dont mess anything up, this is the only thing keeping this car off the road, ive just got to put in these bolts fill the fluids and see if it was worth it

Go to the local junkyard and just take bolts off any car with a 3800.

Thats what I would try first anyway.
