I was trying to add an additional ground strap per the excellent instructions posted below. However, I am completely missing the bolt used to hold this bracket in place.

Does anyone have an extra, or know where a suitable replacement can be found?

and my car runs ALOT smoother, it idles better, and seems to all arround have a little more Get up and go to it

i suspect that the stock one was just getting a little crusty, so i added another one and im amazed at the differance a 6" Pc. of wire has done!!!
somthing to think about

It is held in place by all the wiring. I never noticed it was missing until I went to add the ground strap

Does anyone know the size/thread of this bolt? I'm sure I can get a replacement locally if someone knows what the actual size is.

Thanks in advance for any help.
