Default head screws

i have a stock SV and lost one of my cooling head screws, i tried my LHS and they gave me 2.5mm screws which are too small, and then 3mm screws which were too big, any idea of what size these head screws are, they keep giving me the wrong ones[&o]

have you tried taking one of the remaining screws in to match it up? the VX18 should use either a 2mm or 2.5mm screw.

you'll also want to double check the thread pitch and make sure they match.
