my starter has an 8x1.25 threaded lug on the body. i ended up having to cut this off to clear the turbo oil return. what is this for ? some sort of brace ? an earth ?

Was probably an earth/ground. Some starters have braces on the brush cap ends (GM mostly) I suppose to help prevent flexing under torque.
