Should be either stainless steel or aluminum, neither is magnetic.

I thought as much. So, if stainless, alum will work. How could I tell if the alum is working. Will it discolour quickly?

I haven't ever noticed aluminum cartridge hardware discoloring.
Shure used to supply aluminum screws with their cartridges, and they always looked the same,
even after decades later. Aluminum hardware is much lighter in weight than steel.

No, not necessarily. A bolt's/screw's core diameter (i.e. the threaded hole) is always smaller than it's outer dia.
Best regards!
