Follow the positive lead from your battery to the front side of the transmission,. The positive lead from the battery is connected to the solenoid of the starter. I suggest that you disconnect the positive from the battery and clean the solenoid side of the lead and put it back on and try to start the vehicle before you remove the starter because if there is a bad connection there it will show the same symptoms of a bad starter solenoid. if it still doesn't start then you will need to disconnect the battery and the wires from the solenoid of the starter. There will be 2 bolts holding the starter onto the transmission. you can see the two mounting bolt holes in the picture I provided below. once you get the two bolts out then it is just a matter of getting the starter out of the vehicle. I hope this helps you out... Good luck!
sounds like you are hooking up the starter wrong. the positive goes to the starter main terminal from the battery. the ignition wire goes to the s on the solenoid, which activates 12 volts when the ignition switch is turned on which causes a magnetic field
inside the solenoid and joins the connectors
in the solenoid to the main positive wire from the
battery to the main starter unit brushes/armature inside the starter unit. If you have a constant
12 volts from the ignition wire it will keep the solenoid engaged. If you put the main positive wire on the wrong solenoid terminal it will immediately engage the starter. try putting the main battery wire to the correct terminal or perhaps check the ignition wire for a short or constant voltage to the solenoid.
Dear Fuel Pump Locator..... The fuel pump for your tbird is located inside the fuel tank of the vehicle....as well as the sending unit for the fuel .Yes it is a bear to get down on the ground...especially without a car hoist.The starter solenoid should be on the LF inner febder under neath the hood of the vehicle...I HPE I HELPED!!
hello there, i was wondering if your starter has a solenoid attached on top of it? if in which case it has, on the solenoid you'll possibly see 2 hex screws on the rear portion of the solenoid. a size 12mm hex screw. attached to one of the screw is a short wire guage 8 or guage 6 coming out of the starter. the other screw should be directly attached to the positive terminal of the battery using a heavy guage battery cable. a protruding terminal with a philipps screw or a terminal lug connector is for the starter switch. you could test you starter if you attach a guage 14 wire from that terminal lug and try to directly swipe it on the positive terminal of the battery. warning! this might produce sparks. keep flameable solvents, gasoline and other materials that might ignite away from your testing area. be careful, the heavy ampere output of the battery can burn cables instantly. so do try to keep the positive cables away from the body of the starter which is the negative side of your starter.
