Help please car related
I have recently taken out the starter and I thought I had a good idea by sticking the fasteners to a rather large and powerful magnet that has now come up missing. The vehicle in question is a 03 bravada with the straight six. The fasteners were all of the ones the connected the starter to the car and the electrical connections.
SO what I am asking for is a site or info as for the specs for the fasteners.

bummer, idk about a website...
what size heads did the bolts have? for example 10mm bolts take a
14mm socket a lot of the time.
you should be able to figure out lengths easy enough.
your local harware store might have what you need. take the starter right in with you to figure out the nut or bolt that holds the cable/wires onto it.
if youre buddies w/ someone at a salvage yard or dealership would be helpfull.
this big tranformer came through a town like 30 miles from my hometown!!

The starter connections are more than likely a 6mm or 8mm nut for the smaller connector, and a 10mm nut for the larger one. As far as the bolts - more than likely metric bolts as well, but you're better off getting the correct ones from either GM or a scrapyard, as they're designed to "center" the starter properly and not back out. Just ramming a couple of appropriately sized and threaded bolts won't really work properly, and you'll run the risk of either damaging the starter or having it fall out.

I don't know what the weather is like in Indiana right now, but you could always go to a pull your part junk yard. I would bet most chevy S10's and Blazers have the same hardware. It will definitely be metric.
