I can't get Chevy K1500 starter removed to replace.
I am trying to replace the starter on my 1992 K1500 Silverado, but I am having trouble fully removing the starter. There doesn't seem to be any parts of the truck that can be realisticly removed temporaraly to make room for the starter to come out.
Maybe I'm not trying hard enough since I am working on it outside in -30F temps, but any tips would be appreciated.

hi, it is located on the passenger side of engine right at the transmission housing. It isnt that hard to do really. make ssure you have the unlock code for your factory radio is so equipped.. disconnect any battery terminal. you will see two 14mm bolt heads pointing to the ground within 3inches of each other. the starter looks like a cylinder with a smaller cylinder piggybacked on it. it will have a big cable to it from the battery. remove the nut holding that wire on it,be careful there is another wire there too and that gives power to the ignition switch. now remove the smaller nut holding the purple wire, now remove the two 14mm bolts I mentioned earlier and voila, starter is in your hand. instal by reverse and you are done.
Check the neutral safety switch, your vehicle should have it mounted on the steering colum. A purple wire runs to this switch from the starter and a yellow wire runs from the neutral switch to your ignition.
Disconnect the negative cable from the battery..
Under the front end - find the starter near where the trani connects to the motor and the really big gear (flywheel) is..
Undo 2 bolts to remove the starter.. take the wires off and be sure to put the wires on the starter the same way..
Connect the wires to the new starter and put the starter in with the to bolts.. The starter will only go in one way so you cant mess up how it goes in..
if you know system for a fact has full charge, The low pressure switch will keep ac from engageing, thus shut the system back off. it is simple to replace it is on the reciever dryer under hood on passenger side a silver cylinder you will see a switch like plug on the dryer this is a common problem.and they just unscrew and usually have a valve underneath that keeps you from losing freon if you remove quickly.
