zenith 68 carb, main passage bolt

I just splashed my new boat for the first time, a 1970 C&C Redwing. After trying to start the engine and only managing to dump half a gallon of gasoline in the bilge, I discovered that the main passage bolt on the carburetor was missing.

What size is that bolt?

Can I use any old bolt that will fit, or should I consider material, etc?

Thanks.

Question Me thinks he is talking about an Atomic 4

and not an outboard. Jarrett. I am not sure which bolt you are talking about. Is it one of the bolts that hold the spark arrestor on? or the one of the bolts that hold the carburetor on. If so yep go use anything you can find that will fit.
Where did all the gas come from?
