1. Unhook the battery 2. Raise and support the truck on jack stands. 3. The starter is located on the drivers side at the front of the tranny. 4. Grab an 8mm and a 13mm wrench. 5. Remove the power wires from the starter. 6. Remove the starter by removing the top bolt 9/16 i believe and the bottom nut. Also 9/16 or 5/8. 7. Carefully slide it out toward the front of the engine. 8. Installation is the same as removal.
Between the engine and transmission is the location of the starter, on the outside of them. Basic tools to remove the bolts holding it and the electrical connectors need to be disconnected. Purchase a repair manual for details as this is a decent job.
you have to look with a flash light depending on the vehicle, go under the vehicle and look left to the right of the bottom of the engine and you should see a elongated part no bigger than 12 inches(smaller) and it will have no more than three wires with a smaller cylinder attacked to it. most of the time there will be 3 bolts or nuts holding it on. tools= socket set; standard for domestic vehicles and metric for import vehicles, open end wrenches and wire cutters(just in case). most of the time on domestic cars you will use a size of 1/2 to 9/16 for you tools. start with disconnecting the battery then remove the starter. when putting the new one on just turn the teeth on the starter to line up with the wheel in the engine, you will see that when you remove the old starter. splice the new power wire if needed for the power, a new wire should come with the new starter if it is needed. hook the battery back up and enjoy!
