For some reason that I can’t recall, I think you are talking about the rear calliper. I can’t get a measurement without removing a bolt, I ordered 7/16” by 2” UNF, a long time ago, and I think I had to shorten the bolt. I could not find a bolt with the same dimensions as the bolt I removed, i.e. one that had the same length of shank and thread.

Hope this helps,
