He swapped the starter but we got zonked when it came to the bolt,didn’t fit,tried getting answers from BDM with no success,that was over a week ago
The original bolts wouldn't fit the new starter?

You may very well be correct Eric, however there is one thing that has me suspicious. The lug for positive cable was metric which makes me think it is a Chinese starter and therefore 10-32 would not work, I suggested to pickup a M5 - 0.8
