View Full Version : HELP! Identify this part
05-20-2012, 06:34 PM
Okay so I am in the final stages of my engine transplant in my 96 K1500. I had some trouble getting the studs out that hold the accessory brackets on. A/C compressor & p/s pump on one side and alternator on the other side. No local auto parts store has them or at least can't find it in there system. I boogered the threads up trying to get them out.
Anyone know a GM part number or where I can acquire these things??http://img.tapatalk.com/ad50a618-8da3-6279.jpg

I think you could clean up those threads with a die. Harbor Freight sells a cheap carbon steel tap and die set, metric and inch, for around $30. The set works real well for cleaning up buggered threads and you always have the right size.

You can also use standard 3/8" bolts if you so desire, or 3/8" threaded stock.

^^^^Go with 3/8" threaded stock. Or go the the dealership and get them to pull up the exploded diagram of the accessory brackets. That should have all the parts/hardware on it with part numbers.

You should also be able to find them at the junkyard if there are any trucks that still have them. I was lucky enough to get mine with a 1/4" socket instead of the reverse/inverse torx they're made with.

you dont really need the double end threads. thats just for easier bracket removal and to be honest. i hate the crap out of them. 99.9% i have to pull the whole stud out of the head after pulling the nut off just to have room to slide accesory bracket around water pump. I just got to hardware store and get a 3/8in x 5 1/4 bolt grade 5 with a 9/16in socket head for 3 bucks. works great for me.

Those studs are GM# 10224557 and are shown as 3/8-16 thread , 5.15" total length with E8 torx end. GM's list price is $2.29 each and they are sold in a five count package.
