I've recently replaced my AC Condenser, and in the process lost the two bolts that connect the hard lines to it. Now thinking they would be the same as the ones that connect the lines to the drier canister or the firewall connections I ordered two of those and of course they don't fit. They are too big.

Now, here's where I need some help. I can't seem to find the proper bolts on REAL OEM or any forum for that matter, and the parts guy at the dealership told me to order the one's that I already have... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking on RealOEM I see two sizes for bolt number 14 - looks like one is 5mm(1/4 inch) longer than the other?
When you say too big, is it the wrong size or too long?

The wrong size. The width isn't close. The ones I need are much thinner than #14.

I wonder if it would be possible to drill the holes out a bit so the bolts I have work...
