There is a ground wire on the blower. Does it go to this hole with a welded nut? Also what is the thread size?

Mine is grounded to the top bolt on the Blanking Plate not the firewall

I think that hole is actually for the support bracket, but yes, you can ground it there.

Thanks for the replies but I think I have figured it out. The hole to the left in my picture is for the bracket, it and the other mounting holes are 1/4 / 28. The circled hole is 10/32. There is another one also. They appear to be for clips for holding the temperature sensor tube. I searched Bugeye engine pictures and came up with lots of various layouts. This showed up in several shots.

If it' a 10-32, then yes, it would be for a clip instead.
