Question about 1991 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

Can't get the starter out of a 1991 Nissan pickup.

I need to replace the starter in my 1991 Nissan pickup. My Chilton manual doesn't seem very helpful. I don't see how to get to the second mounting bolt without a hand grenade.

The second bolt is hidden way up and tucked in near the solenoid. You need to setup a ratchet with extensions/socket (14mm) combination that is just a little longer than the starter motor. If you just can't picture where the bolt is, then go down to the parts store and look at/purchase the replacement starter to see how it mounts up.
There are two bolts for the starter mount and one nut for the main starter power lead. There is one plug for the starter key switch.
Disconnect plug. Loosen lower bolt. Remover upper bolt. Remove lower bolt. Twist starter so you can remove main power cable nut (be sure to have disconnected the battery first!) Pull starter.

Take the right front tire off and remove the sphash guard, using a rachet, couple of

There is limited access and its a slow go, but not to bad.
I just removed mine from 1991 Nissan and had it rebuilt for around 100.00 dollars.
