Starter Solenoid Install Problem

Just installed a new starter solenoid as part of my spring tune-up. With the help of Don Moyer, i was able to get the thing mounted and reconnected. However, I found that when I went to make the final connection--- the threaded hole that connects to the post sticking up out of the starter (how's that for technical), I found that the old screw was too short and there was no new screw to go with it.

My assistant said that there may have been a threaded spacer that he took off when he was helping me remove it but he can't be sure. (there was rum involved)

Can I just buy a larger screw and use that to connect??

Here's a picture of what I am talking about
