    Cantilever Brake Question

    I have just acquired a mid-90's Cannondale M300 that needs new a new set of canti's on the front. There are no brakes on the front at all, just one boss bolt.
    I know I can find replacement cantilever brakes and link wires but what I need to know is where can I find replacement boss bolts?
    My other question is how does the brake cable feed through the pre-drilled holes in the quill stem handlebar? Does the cable just feed right through or is there some type of guide/feeder piece that goes in the hole or around the hole somewhere?

    Thanks

    sorry, meant to type "quill stem" - the brake cable doesn't feed through the handlebar.
