I recently picked up a new GM clutch bellcrank pivot stud.  This is the stud that screws into the engine block, and the bellcrank (z-bar) pivots on it.
I want to confirm that I got the right part, since it didn't have any original packaging with it.  I know the correct GM part number is 3866568. My car is at the body shop so I can't get to it right now to confirm.

Can someone please confirm what the correct thread size is for this stud.  Thanks.

This is what I bought:

Thanks Ed.  I'll verify the threads this weekend.

Background:
When I was researching the 3866568 stud, I found some info about the threads being 3/8"-16.
This is what a place called Pontiac Paradise has to say about it:

They also have an ebay auction with similar info:

I also found some posts on Team Camaro about the threads being 3/8"-16.  You can't always believe what you read or see in the internet, so I wanted to be sure.  I'm fairly sure the threads on the one I have are 1/2"-13.

I don't believe there's any difference between the big block and the small block (or even the L6 for that matter), but in my case that measurement is from a big block.
