Question about 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab
I need to change the starter and dont know anything about trucks
Removing the OLD STARTER;
First of all, if you go to an auto parts store they will give you a print out of the part of your engine where the starter is located. The first thing to do is unhook your battery. Then,, on your starter there will be a positive and a negative terminal. They must both be unhooked.There will be bolts in the starter, look to see what size socket it will take and then take all the bolts out of the starter that connects it to your engine. The old starter should now be off.
Installing the NEW STARTER:
Hold it up to where the old one was bolted on and make sure everything is allined. If it is then you are good to go. Bolt it up. Then reconnect the positive and negative terminals on the starter. If it doesn't allin, you will need to go to an auto parts store and purchase shims. You will know if it is allined by trying to start the engine. If it grinds or makes any noise then you need shims. If it doesn't then your new starter is installed. Good luck!

Well you picked one of the easy ones all you have is a couple of mounting bolts (depending on what engine you have) and one battery cable . just pull the bolts out and remove the starter. some times you need a pry bar to break it loose but make sue you have the bolts removed first.

Make sure the starter relay is working properly. Check to see if you are getting power at the relay + cable. Then check to see if you are getting power from the relay to the starter, you may have to turn on the ignition or get someone to turn the switch over in start position. If you're getting power here, then your problem is elsewhere. Are you getting the car to start or just no electrical such as lights and etc?
