CANNOT identify needed hardware on rear axle - help?

Honda diagrams of the trx200's frame and swingarm are of zero help so I hope I can glean some knowledge from y'all here.

I recently ordered another round of parts for my $20 scrapyard quad, this time a much needed new carb, and fuel petcock valve. However one thing is still in my way - NUTS AND BOLTS!

There is a flange nut and/or flange bolt on the rear swingarm/subframe that helps keep the two components properly mated and prevents flexing. (Near the rear sprocket)

The previous owner apparently removed or lost this hardware and improvised by jamming a single random bolt into the bolt hole and threaded two nuts onto it back to back.

This setup allows the frame/swingarm to flex/move, causing the chain to pop off every time you go over a bump or turn too tightly.

Can anyone help me identify this hardware in terms of which nuts and bolts are needed, and where they can be acquired? I apologise for my ignorance, this is my first time working on one of these little hondas, and my head is spinning!

well then 42 is the bolts on this print
those bolts ( and I was thinking this from the start ) is the chain adjustment tension bolts.
If i remember correctly it's one of the bottom two in this pic. Previously had a random bolt and 2 nuts through it, which was wiggling.
where are the chain adjustment bolts ?, I don't see the two that are suppose to be attached to those lower bolts ???. they are number # 3 in fishes post above ^^.
