Next year around this time, I will remove my starter and inspect it again, I shall report back to let you know how it's doing, with a honest answer as to how my JB Weld fix is doing... :D

Generally speaking a mounting stud is just that.you must use the electrical connection too.A 5amp fuse is just a suggestion.You could use up to a 10 amp if the wire size is at least a #14.The regulator probably draws no more than a amp or two while operating.

I don't thinks so but that's why I'm asking.. the relay is designed for 55 watt lights and or a horn circuit..it has all the typical numbers listed I figured it would work ? Oh and it has to be a 5 amp fuse in the line to battery Correct? 40 Amp 12volt relay My starter work great by the way...
Yes, you need to go directly to ground on pin 85 - we just happen to be using ground on pin 85 in this application, it might not be so for other applications, so they don't "ground" terminals through the mounting tabs like they do on some things like horns, lights, etc.

Ten thank you's to both you guy's , may good things come your way, I wish good luck for you both... :D Wingadmin... I'll quit the BS...I'm sorry for funnen ya too much :D ...I'm gonna get my ass booted of this site if I'm not careful :shock: ...I have never been so stumped on anything like this in my lifetime, I always figure it out but not this time...I finally had to surrender to my electrical system it beat me and from the sounds of it, it also beat you up a little too Wingman... :D after I re-read your solution with the relay, I said to myself oh she-it, what a dumb ass I am... :lol: Now it's done, and it's good...and yes I used that ground spade.. there's a nice little bolt left of the batterie's neg post that I mounted the relay to, I turned the box inward it looks good..taped and covered everything nicely..
