Just the aforementioned...
Negative side is fine, positive side is jacked.
..ya think I can just stick the end of a small flat toothpick in there and screw the positive bolt back in - for the EXTREMLY temporary purpose of getting a new battery?

I don't know if that will work, but I do believe that a longer bolt will I have done that a few times. luckily the threads are deeper then the bolts on our cables :P

Just make sure it is the same thread and about 1/4 to 3/8 inch longer and it should work. Just be extra carefull not to overtighten it

If all you can find is to long, washers can be used to make up the space. remember, you are going for something temporary here, it don't have to look super pretty, it just has to work
