Re: Repairing stripped starter solenoid post

Hi, find an automotive electrical repair shop. Ask them for a stud extender!! It's solid brass/copper and just threads onto your existing stud. Has a longer threaded section. Intended for doing exactly what you're trying to do, fix a problem and add several more connectors. Cut off the bad section on yours after spinning a nut all the way down. File it and then remove the nut to clean up any threads buggered by cutting.

Follow the starter cable back to the battery and hook up your extra wires there. You could also hook a few wires to the alternator output.
