oil pan bolt

I bought an 87 300td and it had a rounded off oil pan bolt. I've changed oil 3 time on it, but the head is so soft that I am worried that I'm not getting tightened enough with a vise-grip. Can anyone tell me the thread and diameter and then I'll buy a hardened bolt that I can rely on?
