First of all: ALL METRIC except for wheel size and seat belt bolts.

So if near 3/8 thread, likely 10mm but there are differing thread pitches for 10mm, as there are for 12mm thread.
I suggest measuring 10 threads and then dividing by 10 to get the thread pitch, or take existing head bolt to Ace Hardware and use the thread finder tool there to make sure.

You could even buy 2 bolts of 10mm thread of different pitches from the little drawers, and do same with 12mm and then see which of those 4 bolts threads in readily.
