Default 1997 Honda Civic DX - PS Bracket Bolts?

I bought a car that had the power steering unit removed and am trying to put everything back together. I bought the new Power Steering mounting bracket, but no bolts. I need to know the bolt sizes that go to the Power Steering Bracket. Can anyone help?

I'm actually in the process of replacing the belts on my 98 Civic and removed the PS pump. Just walked outside and pulled the very top bolt on the bracket. I included a picture so you can verify that your car's bracket and pump look similar to mine. Maybe I can at least point you in the right direction if no one else knows right off the top of their head.

The first picture is the black bracket. The red arrow shows where I removed one of the bolts.

The second picture is of the power steering pump that was attached to the bracket of my 1998 Honda Civic EX 1.6L SOHC.

The third is a picture of the bolts removed from the bracket (top) and the power steering pump (bottom).

Unfortunately the batteries in my micrometer are dead so here are some rough measurements using a ruler:

Bracket bolt
Length w/o head ~55mm
Length w/head ~63mm
Diameter ~9-10mm

Power Steering Pump bolt
Length w/o head ~47mm
Length w/head ~54mm
washer width ~3mm
washer diameter ~23mm
Diameter ~5-6mm

I'm assuming these are metric bolts, but can't make any firm recommendations on the pitch of the threads without a screw/tap plate to test the bolt on. Maybe these numbers can get you in the ball park for a trip to the hardware store.

If I recall correctly, the bolts on the a/c compressor bracket that mount to the block(green arrow in first picture) looked to have 14mm heads. There is a good possibility, although not definite, that these bolts might have the same thread pitch since they have the same size head. You could pull one of these bolts and lightly try to thread it in the PS bracket. Use your hands and not a wrench just in case it's the wrong size. You don't want to cross thread the hole or mess up your screw threads. Good luck. If you don't have any luck, I can see about finding the right size nut at work and let you know.
