Dropped starter bolt into bilge, D'oh!

I was up late last night and was getting pretty tired, but I only had one thing left to do, connect the positive battery cable to the starter. Unfort I dropped the bolt into the bilge and now I can't find it. Anyone know what size/type of hardware this guy is? Thanks

Bolt or nut? All cables I have seen were attached by nuts.

Yep, they can pull a starter for reference. Walter, you know when you get back from the store is when you will find the old nut.

Not sure if your bilge is similar to mine (2006 X15), but check under the gas tank. I have had stuff roll up under there out of sight. A long pick-up magnet is your friend.

If it's not too late, I'd suggest getting a stainless nut.

We all have a bilge but when you drop something in there it becomes the "bilge of no return". Kind of like outer space.
