Default What is the pitch on a AC bolt?

I was driving around one day and heard a bang. Stopped and found the ac clutch rolling around on the under body. Thankfully the spacer was stuck on the shaft (magnetism worked for me). Unfortunately, I was unable to find the screw.

I went to the junk yard and the oldest thing I could find was a 2003 toyota camry. The engine looked very similar. I took the bolt from that AC compressor shaft.

Before I twist this bolt in there, I figure I should ask someone more intelligent than me a question. What is the proper pitch sizing for my AC shaft on a 2006 Toyota Camry 2.4L engine?

- I cannot seem to find a diagram anywhere...

Are you asking about the bolt that screws into the drive shaft?

If so this is a special bolt. Search the internet.

Run the bolt you have in by hand... if it is the right pitch, it will go in almost all the way before it begins to get tight. If it is NOT the right pitch, it will only go in a thread or two before it gets too hard to turn by hand. This is assuming it is the correct diameter to begin with!
