Im trying to find my starter and i cant find it... I dont think it is my starter cuz it clicks when i turn the key but wont start. And I tried to jump it and still nothing happened


If it clicks it could also be the starter solenoid. The starter is attached to the bell housing/torque converter housing where the transmission attaches to the engine block. Follow the battery lead, it usually goes straight to the starter solenoid.

I have a 1985 Camaro Berlinetta with a unknown 305 in it. The noise on the starter broke in half I took it out it's for a 1980 Impala. I tried a 1985 Camaro starter no luck. I put a new 1980 impala starter...


If I remember correctly, there were two noses for those starters, either should work as the difference was that on one both bolts were long, the other used a long and short one.
The one thing that may be missing there is that both starters used a front support bracket that either fastened to the case or to one long bolt that holds the starter together that had a short threaded extension on it. the other end of the bracket attaches to the engine block. Under load, that bracket keeps the starter from trying to tilt up and break.
Another thing that can break the nose is an ignition cross-fire. that can shock the housing and also give you that problem. Make sure the ignition wires are good as well as the cap and rotor.

Starter solinoid replacement enstruction


SOLENOID REPLACEMENT
(see Figures 5, 6 and 7)

Prior to removing the solenoid from the starter motor unit, matchmark the solenoid-to-starter motor housing position, as shown in the accompanying illustration.
  1. Remove the starter motor from the vehicle.
  2. Detach the solenoid-to-starter motor wire from the solenoid terminal.

Do not disassemble the solenoid; if the solenoid is defective, replace the entire unit with a new one.
  1. Remove the two attaching screws, then slide the solenoid out of the starter motor housing flange.

Fig. 5: Before removing the starter motor solenoid, matchmark the solenoid-to-starter motor housing relationship

Fig. 6: Disconnect the field coil lead from the solenoid by loosening the retaining nut ...

e357fdb.jpg

Fig. 7: ... then remove the two attaching screws and separate the solenoid from the motor housing


To install:
  1. Inspect the solenoid plunger joint for wear or other damage. Replace it, if damage is evident.
  2. Apply Suzuki Super Grease A (99000-25010) or equivalent, to the solenoid plunger and to the tip of the lever arm (inside the starter motor-to-solenoid housing hole).
  3. Insert the solenoid into the starter motor housing, ensuring that the matchmarks made during removal are aligned.
  4. Install and tighten the two attaching screws securely.
  5. Attach the starter motor-to-solenoid wire to the solenoid terminal.
  6. While the starter motor is removed form the vehicle, perform the testing procedure to ensure that the new solenoid functions properly.
  7. Install the starter motor.

Hope this help (remember rated and comment this).

How do I change a starter in a 1989 5.2 liter dodge ram truck?


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Gasoline Engines

Fig. 13: Disconnect the wires attached to the starter solenoid to facilitate removal
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Fig. 14: Unbolt the starter from the vehicle

  1. Remove the cable from the starter.

Fig. 15: Once detached, remove the starter from the vehicle


04789a9.jpg
Fig. 16: Exploded view of the starter mounting-2.5L engine
  1. Disconnect the solenoid leads at their solenoid terminals. If necessary, tag then to avoid confusion when re-installing.
9796cc6.jpg
Fig. 17: Attach the starter wire connector to the terminals as shown-V6 and V8 engines


2e59350.jpg
Fig. 18: To remove the starter, unbolt the mounting hardware shown-V6 and V8 engines


On 4WD Dakota models with the V6 engine, the starter is removed from above. On these models you will have to disconnect the steering gear and position the shaft out of the way to gain working clearance.
  1. Remove the starter attachment bolts and withdraw the starter from the engine flywheel housing. On some models with automatic transmissions, the oil cooler tube bracket will interfere with the starter removal. In this case, remove the starter attachment bolts, slide the cooler tube bracket off the stud, and then withdraw the starter.
dc7317b.jpg
Fig. 19: When detached, pull the starter away from the engine and remove it from the vehicle-2WD Dakota model shown

To install:

  1. Be sure that the starter and flywheel housing mating surfaces are free of dirt and oil to make a good electrical contact.
1547e44.jpg
Fig. 20: Install the starter motor on the 4WD Dakota from above as shown
  1. Slide the starter in place, secure using the bolts and washers removed. Tighten the bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm). Connect wires and battery cable end at the starter.
  2. If removed for clearance, reconnect the steering column shaft.
  3. Secure the oil cooler bracket if equipped. Connect the negative battery cable on the battery.
When tightening the mounting bolt and nut on the starter, hold the starter away from the engine for the correct alignment.

Diesel Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the truck and support it safely on jackstands.
  3. Disconnect and label the wires at the starter motor.
  4. Remove the attaching bolt, nut and washer, then lift the starter and solenoid assembly from the engine.
To install:
  1. Before installing the starter motor, be sure the mounting surface on the drive end housing and the flywheel housing are clean, to ensure good electrical contact.
  2. When tightening the attaching bolt and nut, hold the starter away from the engine to ensure the proper alignment. Tighten the bolts to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  3. Attach the wiring at the starter. Tighten the solenoid connection to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm). Tighten the battery cable at the starter motor to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Attach the negative battery cable.
SOLENOID REPLACEMENT
Chrysler Corp. for 1989-91 models did provide replaceable solenoids for the starter motors covered by this information. However since 1992, the manufacturer no longer recommends replacement of individual components, even if the later unit has the same part number of a formerly serviceable unit. Chrysler now simply calls for replacement of the entire starter assembly if the solenoid is found faulty.

Install starter


  • Open the hood and locate the starter attached to the transmission bell housing. To inspect and remove the starter, it may be necessary to work under the vehicle. Park the vehicle on a solid level surface and set the parking brake. If the vehicle needs to be lifted, support it with jack stands.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable, wrap the cable end with a shop towel and place it away from the battery post.
  • Mark the starter electrical wires for installation reference. Remove the starter wires.
  • Remove the starter mounting bolts. Remove the starter.
  • Compare the new starter with the old one to verify that you have the correct part.
  • Using a flashlight, inspect the flywheel teeth (through the opening in the bell housing) while an assistant turns the engine over by hand. You should replace the flywheel if any teeth are missing, cracked, or chipped.
  • Install the new starter. Torque the mounting bolts to the manufacturer's specifications.
  • Attach the electrical wires to the new starter.
  • Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Start the vehicle to verify the repair.
