Default MAF sensor retaining screw size?

Carefully removed the MAF sensor and throttle body on my '92 SE today and cleaned it up nice using the proper chemicals and procedures. Problem is that while securing that the last MAF sensor retaining screw I dropped it somewhere on the ground and couldn't find it since it was getting dark.

By chance would anyone know exactly what size screw might be used on this MAF sensor? I used a flathead screw driver (could have used a Phillips head too) on these screws so they aren't hex or Torx. Is it okay if I only have two screws on the MAF sensor if I can't find the old one or a replacement?

I'm not sure exactly what they are..

Probably an M6 or M8 with fine pitch. Pull another out and take it with you to the store.
