Tap size is 6-32. I snapped several off trying to tap these heat sinks, not sure why. You can see my solution. This PMD survived a head-on with a palm tree, truck still ran. She had to hit directly on the PMD. Had to cut the bumper from around it. It has been in use for about 8 years.

Metric would be 3.5x.8 , SAE 6-32: 0.1380 x 32 tpi
I really do not know for a fact whether it,s metric or SAE, just wrote it down long ago. The two sizes are almost identical. Since most of the fasteners on the IP are SAE, I would say the PMD screws are too.
Maybe someone knows for sure.

Yes, they are SAE

very brittle taps, be careful when tapping.

I usually use my old 14 volt Dewalt drill for tapping. I set the clutch down low and go to town.
I used a Lawson 2 flute tap. Worked great.

I used a piece of 1/4" aluminum between the heat sink and the PMD so I didn't have to watch for the fins.

I also use No-ox for electrical connections when putting bolts in aluminum - any opinions on whether that works better than nickle or copper anti-seez?

Yup, but use carefully. Better use it with an electric drill and clutch set to a low value
