If the bolts have a totally smooth shank, they're wrong. The shank should be "bloomed" (I'm struggling to explain) and show "pin marks" on it. Trial fit into the starter holes. If the shank clears by .020 or more, it's the wrong bolt. Bolts from the hardware store won't work. Bolts from the graveyard probably will.
