When replacing my alternator, I removed the engine hoist bracket on my Zetec. At the bottom of the bracket was a nut and stud with a Torx head on it. The stud came out with the nut.

After putting the stud back in, I've had trouble getting the nut very tight due (there's a small metal bracket that fits over it). Does anyone know it this stud is integral to anything else beside the engine hoist bracket?

^^You are right, it has a small ground wire going to it. If the hole seems stripped or wallowed out then you should think about putting the ground somewhere else on the engine to ensure it's a good ground. A bad ground can lead to all sorts of weird problems.
