Broken Regulator Mounting Stud?

I was getting close to finishing up the install on my oil cooler kit and one of the regulator mounting studs broke when I was torquing it to 100 in-lbs. The first one tightened up fine, but the second one broke without much effort on my part. Anyways, I pulled every thing back off and was able to drive the broken stud out of the frame with just a couple taps with my attitude adjuster. Anybody know the HD P/N for a replacement? I could not find it in my parts catalog. I'm confident I could get back on the road with something from the hardware bin, but I'd rather not. Thanks for reading this,
Mike

I'd just go to you local Fastenal place, and have them match it up. There is not any stress on the joint. No need for a special fastner.

The exploded parts diagram does not show the studs as individual parts. They are part of the frame. OEM Part numbers are available here...

I would suggest getting a bolt and welding the head of the bolt to the frame for a more permanent fix or you can just use a bolt, nut and lock washer and tighten it up and call it good.

Thanks All. I ended up using some SS fasteners. I went ahead and replaced the other stud as well (OCD). I used button heads that were a little shorter than the original studs. Just another bump in the road

Fairly certain you will lose the ground which the pressed in stud provided if you didn't grind the paint away.

You can buy replacement press in studs from McMaster-Carr. You'll end up with 50 of em... but won't be expensive. You can find these press in studs at a good hardware/automotive supply.

Thanks RageGlide. I just checked with my continuity tester and the bolts are still making ground to frame. Been riding it like this for just over a month, so hopefully it's all good! I will probably leave things as is. I used bolts that were slightly shorter than the studs to clean things up a little.

You could use a nut rivit also. They are made for thin metal applications. They have a knurling around the outer. You drill out the hole with the recommended drill and drive it in. Ive used them in snowplow applications. If it to long you can grind it down. They come in many sizes.

If it's making a solid ground that's good. Just realize that at higher current levels a simple continuity test may not tell the entire story. It might be fine, but it might not...

Replacement studs are available in several different lengths.
