Default Alternator bolt

Anyone know the size/threading of the lower alt bolt, '96 SSEi.
Mine must have dropped into the 'never to be heard from again' zone while changing the rear valve cover gasket.
Thanks!

Don't you just love it when you spend a hour trying to fish it out and finally give up, only to have it fall out on it'* own.

Funny thing about that is whenever someone drops one of those here...I know exactly where to reach to pluck them back out. They always land in one of two places. The easy one where it always lands..or the impossible (which means I reach in the box for another...lol)

I was very suprised to hear it drop out. Now if my long 3/8" extension would just drop out of the wheel well I'd be stoked! LOL Guess the fenders have a nice gap, with just enough space for an extension to drop in.
