Help with Roofing Materials

Next Friday I am removing the existing (rotted) 7/16" sheathing on my detached garage roof alonf with the shingles. The new material will consists of 5/8" sheathing w/ H-clips with architectural laminated shingles (advertised in Menard's ad for 18.88 after rebate right now). The roof is 24" on center

My question is what size/length of fasteners should I use for the following:
Size of nail to fasten sheathing to trusses:____
Size of nail to fasten drip edge to sheathing:____
Size of staple to fasten 30# tar paper:____
Size of nail to fasten shingles to sheathing:____


I thank you for the information ahead of time!!!!

Here's what I'd use:

Size of nail to fasten sheathing to trusses: 8d galv
Size of nail to fasten drip edge to sheathing: 1 1/4" roofing nail
Size of staple to fasten 30# tar paper: 1" cap nail
Size of nail to fasten shingles to sheathing: 1 1/4" roofing nail

I've never seen the need to use panel edge clips with 5/8" osb since it is rated for 24" spans. 1/8" spacing can be achieved with a nail between rows.
