There are two different size flywheels (starter ring gears) on these engines. It sounds like you have the flywheel with the higher number of teeth. Find a good auto parts store to get the right starter for your truck.

OK I need help I just rebuilt my 1976 Chevy 350 after the first start up I am getting grinding sounds from the inside my motor while its running can anyone tell me why please help


the only things that are rotating to give a grinding sound are
the crankshaft, cam shaft and starter motor
for the crankshaft it could be slipper bearings too tight and are now spinning in the caps, missing thrust bearing halves on the crank shaft
on the cam shaft -bolts behind the cam gear touching on the back of the gear
oil thrower disc in wrong and the edge is running on the cover of the timing chain housing
starter motor not in correctly and jamming the pinion in the ring gear while the motor is running( some 350 motors have a shim adjustment for the starter housing to block
It is difficult to say exactly but if you followed the workshop manual to the letter you will know what you missed

How do you replace a1988 Chevy nova starter?


Under the car take off the transmission dust cove and you will see the the starter
Disconnecte the batter negative first then the red positive this is a must the wires run straight to the starter the little round thing on it is the starter solenoid it has one or 2 small wires the starter has a big positive red power wire take off the wires two bolts hold the starter to the engine block some have metal shims if it doesn't don't add if it does then put it back depends on where the block was made the shim is to make up the space metric to standard of you can't get at the small wires get something to rest the starter on and take off the wires with the starter lowered then put on the new one it will take about 2 hours

Starter will not stay tight, chevy 350


It sounds like the bolt holes may be stripped. Try and put the bolts in without the starter use new bolts and try to pull them out by hand. If you can not it is possible they may be only partly stripped and need the threads cleaned up. Make sure you use the proper size tap. If you still have problems you may need to drill out the bad bolt hole or holes one size larger and re-tap the holes one size larger. This is a big job and you will need larger bolts as well. Depending on the room you have to work with you may have to pull the engine to do a good job. good luck.

What size socket 4caliber bolts on 97f150 4x4 4.2engine


Even Ford uses metric sockets for some bolts. I start with both metric and standard sockets then use the smallest tightest one that fits on without being forced on with a hammer. I have had better luck breaking the bolts loose with 1/2" drive sockets and a flex handle breaker bar then use the rachet after the bolt is loose.

I have a 88 chevy 4x4 with sb 350 tbi. i want to swap 350 block with a 400 block ( keep the 350 heads and tbi system just swap the block). i know i must bore the steam holes but thats all i know i must do....


a full decking of heads, as well as refurbishing at a head shop is most likely necessary, new head bolts, head gaskets, as well as checking the valve/piston clearance.make sure the coolant holes are properly cleaned out, and this could be a good time to port and polish the heads

I am replacing the starter on my 350 chevy motor, in a 1984 cj7. I took the starter out, purchased new, and can not get the bolt holes to line up


on Chevy small blocks there only two bolt patterns one with off set holes and one with straight across bolt holes
i ran across this same problem a while ago starter that was suppose to fit my motor according to part stores was the offset bolt pattern but motor actually had straight across bolt pattern i had to go back to i think like a 1969 motor to get straight across bolt pattern even but i know motor wasn't that old

if you have the correct bolt pattern make sure the starter not hitting on something (frame, headers, tranny lines etc.) if clearance is the issue you might need to go with a smaller starter (they work just as well but the starter motor it self is smaller in diameter) the smaller starter might not have as much power as the bigger one but shouldn't be a problem as long as your not running a extremely high compression motor

(the following is untested by my self but good friend that drag races says it true)
My friend Drag race car uses a starter off a 4.3L Chevy vortex motor( 6 cyl motor found in blazers, S10 etc) And it turns over his High compression drag race small block and gives him the clearance he needs.

My minivan needs a new starter. I don't know where it's located or how to change it. Help???


1998 Windstar Starter Replacement

The starter is located on the bottom at the front of the engine. If you follow your positive cable that goes down to the bottom of your engine it will take you directly to your starter. You will find some of the attaching hardware to be SAE sizes and some are Metric.

First you will need to raise the car and put safety stands under it to prevent any possibility of falling. Also you must chock the rear wheels to keep the car from rolling and coming off the jack stands while up in the air. The car will want to roll when you are reefing on the bolts.

  1. Disconnect the battery cables at the battery.

  2. Disconnect the two wires to the starter.

  3. The larger wire runs through a standoff above the starter. It makes the job easier if you will remove the bolt holding the standoff to the engine block. This allows you to move the large wire out of your way.

  4. Remove the two bolts holding the starter onto the flywheel housing. One bolt is easy to get at as it is visible on the front but the second one is hidden up behind the starter.
    NOTE: Starter bolts are 13mm. Brakeline bracket bolt is 15mm.

  5. Do the opposite to install.
  6. If this was helpful please leave a positive rating.

The starter has gone bad and cant get it off the van


If you mean those lousy soft bolts they use to hold the starter in place rounded off when you tried to remove it then the answer is simple. Same thing happened to me, and I used my Sears Rounded Bolt Removers to pull them out. Just tap on the one that fits your bolt, put a 7/8" socket on it, and slowly back them out. Mine came right out using this proceedure. Now finding NEW ONES can be a problem, as they are metric. Belive it or not I had to go to a chevy store to get mine.
Good luck with the van.
