Question about 1989 Ford F 150
How do you change a starter on a 1989 f-150 truck
You will need some tools, 1\2" socket 6 point, NOT 12 point, with a 3" and 6" extension,and maybe a 1\2"deep well socket,and swivel,perferably 3\8 drive wratchet,a 9\16" socket for the battery cable at the starter but it could be 5\8" socket on some starters,,and depends on if the starter brace that hooks to the starter then to the engine is hooked up you will need a 3\8 socket.....you dont have to unhook the battery to do this,Fords use a solenoid on the fender that sends power to the starter.there will be i think 3 bolts that holds the starter on,so take them out,then unhook the brace to the engine,be careful the starter doesnt fall in your face,then unhook the big cable to get it out of your way,pull the starter down....reverse the process for installation....the exhaust cross over pipe and\or exhaust manifold may get in the way
