Cutless Bearing Screws

Today while cleaning my prop I discovered that one of the two screws holding the cutless bearing in place in the stern tube has worked its way out.

Does anyone know what size screw, thread count mainly, goes through the stern tube into the cutless bearing?

Can you access the remaining screw? It's probably the same.

Mine are 1-1/4" 1/4-20 stainless steel screws. To make sure the cutlass bearing can't possibly spin in the shaft log, I drilled and tapped the bearing on each side. I use loctite to keep the screws in place.
