Does anyone know what size screws to use for attaching the gas filler tube to the fender?

It's not a 6 or an 8, too small and too big respectively. I didn't think to figure it out before putting the tank and tube in the car and I really don't want to take them back out.

It looks to me that maybe one screw has a threaded hole - the top one. but the other two maybe are just sheet metal screws.

all 3 that hold my filler neck to the quarter are 10 X 5/8, top hole is not threaded. where my car is black I used SS screws with a black head.

Just a follow-up. Thanks for the feedback. It turned out that mine were a #8 but not a machine screw, they were self-tapping sheet metal screws. I got it secured finally. Thanks
