Subject: [CR]Replacement fixing bolts for Campagnolo handlebar controls?

Anyone out there have a loose set of Campagnolo handlebar controls that could check the characteristics of the fixing bolts? I was about to affix a pair that had been sitting in a bin of parts during refitting of a Ron Cooper.. After removing the levers from the control body, I noticed that neither of the two had the fixing bolts (grrrr...).

I seem to recall that Suntour versions use a LH thread and I'm hoping that this is not the case with the Campagnolo fastener. Ideally, an off the shelf bolt could be used and, if necessary, filed a bit to serve the purpose. Not above doing a bit of bodging here, I suppose.
