spare bolts and nuts for Meade 16

I am looking for a source for mounting bolts for the fork to mount and also knobs for the field tripod for my 16 inch Meade LX200. These were lost when we moved and now need to find replacements. The manual calls out 3/8 dia 16TPI by 3/4 inch length but these threads did not match???
sources for these would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your input.

Have you tried the same size but with a different thread pitch; i.e. NC (coarse), NF (fine), or Metric (I do not know which of those your stated thread pitch is, but two remain to be trialed)?
