broke bolt on starter

1985 Camaro LG4 with 5 spd and a/c.

Every once in a while my car is hard to start so i decided to tighten my starter connections. The larger wire nut was problem...then i moved to the smaller wire and started to twist the nut and the bolt rung off in half....

Car will not start. Is there something i can do as a 'work around' or do i need to replace the solenoid?

Also, is there a tutorial on doing this?

Re: broke bolt on starter

might as well get new starter .not a whole lot more than buying solenoid and youll be taking the whole thing out anyway.
