Jeep Information


Model:Grand cherokee

Engine:4.0l l6

My 1995 jeep grandcherokee is missin the top starter bolt ive been trying to find out the right size. Ive herd it is a 7/16 by 1 1/4" bolt but never got the thread type. Ive tried a 7/16 - 13 by 1 1/4. But its the wrong size. Ive tried dealerships, there useless and ive asked autozone but the only have ford starter bolts in there "help" section. Ive also tried junkyard they say they throw away the bolts for some odd reason. Please help!!!!!!!! I would really appreciate it if someone would have the right size.

Thank you

And please help

One thing I've done is pulled the second starter bolt for the thread count and size. Then with a depth gauge measured bolt depth for bolt that needs replacing. Then took this info to ace hardware and got a grade eight bolt from them to use. I did this to my heavy duty starter in my f250. When I couldn't get a replacement
