I have a couple of simple plastic thread and bolt sizing gauges that the local supplier was giving away. Remarkably handy. If the dumper is quite old I doubt it would be metric.

Quite possibly it is Whitworth and they have a 55' angle thread, if not then maybe SAE with a 60' thread angle. TPI is the next thing (threads per inch) and this will confirm the thread size when we know the angle.
May be have a Google search for a thread chart online then using a metal rule count the threads over an inch and let us know. I have a set of thread gauges in the shed and they are very helpful in identifying the threads.
Cheers Cobba
