  • Starter stud
  • Good afternoon all,
    Got my 600 Ford running today with new wiring harness. It charges and ammeter works (none of that was wired up before + ammeter was missing). Very proud of myself so far....
    Anybody ever use one of these starter stud repair studs?
    Usually seem to be part no. ABC508.
    Stud for cable on starter is stripped.
    Dont think too difficult to dismount + disemble starter to replace but I noticed these repair studs...?
    Next question - I assume brass stud should have brass nut?
    Anybody know what thread these are? 5/16 x something?
    If I use the repair stud do I remove the bottom nut or leave it in place?

    I think the repair stud will probably work, just not enuff thread on end of stud with width of cable end.
    Many Thanks!

  • I usually take off the lower nut---saw off the damaged part of the stud---there will be several good threads where the nut was----let the cap part of the repair stud be used as that nut---install a nut, the cable eyelet, then another nut on top----worked for me, Dennis
