SOURCE: neeed to take apart steering shaft on 93 dodge

Starter - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION on Gasoline Engines
(see Figures 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20)


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


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.

Fig. 17: Attach the starter wire connector to the terminals as shown-V6 and V8 engines


Fig. 18: To remove the starter, unbolt the mounting hardware shown-V6 and V8 engines (click image for zoom)

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.

Fig. 19: When detached, pull the starter away from the engine and remove it from the vehicle-2WD Dakota model shown (click image for zoom)

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.

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.

This bulletin involves release of a new repair package for the steering coupler with a revised boot design.

Remove and discard the existing cover and seal.
Disassemble the coupler and inspect the shoes, shoe retaining spring, internal bearing surfaces of the coupler body, and the shaft pin for evidence of wear. Replace any worn components.
Fill the coupler body 1/2 full with Multipurpose Grease, NGLI Grade 2 EP, such as MOPAR P/N(NNN) NNN-NNNNor equivalent.
Place the boot and clamp on the shaft.
Press the shoe pin onto the steering shaft so that it projects equal distance on the shaft.
Place the spring on the side of the shaft, straddling the shoe pin.
Place the shoes on the pin ends with the flat side towards the spring, engaging the tangs.
Squeeze the shoes together, compressing the spring, and push the assembly into the coupler body with the master spline on the upper shaft.
Drive in the NEW dowel pin flush with the outer surface of the coupler body.
Position the boot on the body and install the clamps on both ends. Be sure that the contact surfaces are free of grease.
Work the shaft in and out several times to distribute the grease in the assembly

Hope this helps.

Need an emissions schamatic for my 1984 K10 silverado 305 engine

Unfortunately, there are 13 variations for this engine and year. Was this truck sold or modified for high altitude? Was it sold in California or modified to meet the CA emission standards? Does it have a manual or auto transmission? After narrowing down based on answers to these questions, there are still alternative configurations depending on the particular equipment, so look carefully at the diagrams to see which components are used on your engine. Sometimes you can match the 3 letter code for the diagram to letters in the VIN or a sticker in the engine compartment. Please let me know if you have questions.

I need to replace starter motor in my 2000 Toyota Tundra 4.7 L V8. Do I need to remove the upper and lower plenum?

No you do not need to remove the plenums. The starter is removed and installed from underneath the truck of from within the wheel well if the wheel is removed. You should go buy a Haynes or Chilton repair manual for $20 they are indisposable to do it yourselfers and will give detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures.

1984 dodge charger. how to i get to the starter

The starter is an overrunning clutch drive type with a solenoid mounted on the starter motor. Six different type starters are used on these models. Two each are built by Nippondenso, Bosch and Mitsubishi for manual and automatic transaxle applications. Removal and installation procedures are the same for all units. Some early production models may experience starter motor damage due to improper fit of the upper and lower steering column shrouds. Irregularities in the mating surface of the key cylinder area may cause the ignition key to bind, causing the starter to be continuously engaged. The condition can be corrected by loosening the shroud cover screws about 1 1 / 2 turns.
If loosening the screws does not solve the problem, the covers will have to be replaced with new parts, which are available only in black and must be painted to match interior trim.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If equipped, remove the heat shield.
  3. On the 2.2L loosen the air pump tube at the exhaust manifold, then swivel the bracket away from the starter.
  4. Remove the wires from the starter and solenoid.
  5. Support the starter, remove the bolts and lift the unit out from the flywheel housing.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal.

I have an old car but it very old it a 1984 and have a problem to take out the starte so can you please explain me how to do it

Disconnect the battery. To find the starter trace the wire from the battery and it will go to the starter. Disconnect the wires from the starter (make a note of which wire goes where) then remove the two bolts and the starter will come off. Make sure you purchase a new solinoid (bendix) with the new starter.
