Need new motors? Grind a gearbox? Adding teeth to a pinion?

Tldr: need the screw size that holds motor to gearbox -

Hi all, my wife recently picked up a LT Hummer for free and it wasn't working well. Immediately replaces the battery, but then I discovered that one of the motors only had one screw holding it to the gearbox, which meant that it was mounted on an angle and not driving the gears. I pulled it apart and went to replace the 1 1/2" screw, but the size and thread pitch seemed to be impossible to find at home Depot. Can anyone give me the correct sit I need for this, and maybe where to find it? Thanks for the help.

Very hard to find in hardware stores (maybe easier to find in hobby shops). I found the only Brafasco in Canada to stock it, Milner Drive in Scarborough.
