Default "R"terminal stud size

Can someone provide me with the stud size of the "R" terminal on a '64 starter? I need to buy a new ring terminal and can't determine if it is a #6 or #8. In the picture it is the one with the black with pink stripe wire.
Thanks.

No specific memory. A #6 machine screw nut uses 5/16" wrench, and a #8 uses a 11/32" wrench. If it's 3/8" wrench, it's a #10.

Maybe that helps.

I think both of them (S and R terminals) are #8; the nuts are 11/32"

I took the nut off and had to use an 11/32" wrench, so looks like it's an #8. Thanks guys.

Thanks Mark. Any idea what the main power stud is? Where the red cable goes. I am trying to find the correct 16 gauge fusible link. I think it's 3/8" but not sure.

Another vote for #8.

11/32” to remove.

at least that’s what all my other cars are.

Thanks Mark. All I seem to be finding so far in 16 gauge fusible links are ring terminals with 1/4" opening. I am sure they are out there somewhere.
