Hello I will help,

Do you need the thread size and length or the size of the bolt heads?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
both
Saturn Mechanic: George H., ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

The bolt heads are 13mm. I am not sure of the thread and length as I don't have a set to measure. Do you have yours?

they are on car . not sure which is top boltone is thinner than the other. look similar in length
Saturn Mechanic: George H., ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

They are very similar. Saturn did a lot of standardization to save on inventory. The top bolt is between the sol;enoid and the block. A deep socket with a 6 inch extension reaches it.

They are all the same diameter and thread, you can match any one of them for size.

Is this video why you consider installing a stud? I don't find it hard to use the bolt but Richpin does many things I would not do.

how is is it that for honda reflex moped of which very few people have there are pictures of every nut, screw and bolt for buying replacement parts , yet for saturn , though not popular still sold 10 to 50 times more units than reflex yet no pics or description of starter bolts
Saturn Mechanic: George H., ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

You would have to ask GM that question but I suspect it is the cost of producing such information.

It is a simple matter to measure the bolts. I suspect they are 8x1.25 or 1.50 or 10x1.25 or 1.50 but I would have to measure to be sure. They look to be about 50 - 60 mm long but again I would have to measure.

Let me know how I can help

Thanks

OK, I went out and measured a couple I am sure are the same and they are 8x1.25 x 40mm. with 13mm heads. You can get the same bolt with a 12mm head but the rest is the same bolt.
