Default 75 Ironhead cam cover - Screws don't fit missing bolt

Working on my 75 Sportster. Was missing the lower left cam cover bolt when I got it. Picture below shows the missing bolt. So I purchased this colony cam cover screw kit.

Colony-cam-cover-screw-kit J&P Cycles Part Number: 433-567
Manufacturer Part Number: 8783-8

I cannot find anywhere in the service manual bolt sizes for the cam cover. But none of the bolts from the kit fit that hole. They are too large and will not even go into the hole. I removed the bolt from the hole to the right of the missing one to see what size it was and it does not fit that hole either.

Whats up with this? Do I have a modified or non original cam cover or something? What do I need to replace this thing? See picture.
