Broke starter solenoid positive post

I had a bit of a brain fart and didn't realize that the solenoid bolts were copper. I assume they were just copper plated. So, I was tightening the bolt and it broke off. How do I replace the bolt that is threaded into the solenoid and replace it with a new one? I guess I will just put my old solenoid on the newer starter for now.



By the way, I was doing the N3H1 to N3Z1 "swap" (I guess).



Also, I took the old solenoid off the old starter and I have no idea how I would go about getting inside of it. It seems like the plastic is glued to the metal. Also, I am pretty certain the "posts" are bolts because on one terminal it is loose and it feels like the head is rectangular and is trying to turn inside of another rectangle(The sides hit). (Sorry, for my extremely poor explaining skills)

Doubt you can replace just the bolt; a new solenoid is what you need.
