As both the disc and the hub are cast iron, I would suggest the thread would be UNC.. If no one has confirmed shortly, I will check later and come back.

Well there you go, I guessed wrong!! It is 3/8" UNF.. Haven't you any bolts from the hub to confirm this with?

Hi Street,
I suggest you buy a "Parts List" exploded drawings inside and codes for screws, bolts, nuts. Maybe Tap and Die Set very cheap with Screw Pitch Guage included.
Plus a Unified Thread File.
Plus Vernier Caliper, Dial one prefered not Battery.
Nearly Christmas to make your wish list.
