Put in new starter after rethreading the hole


A lot of V-8 Chevys, GM's, for that matter, need shims between the starter and the block. Go to your local auto-parts store and just tell the guy what you need!

How To Change A Starter In MK2 VW Manual Transmission


The starter is mounted between the engine and radiator, bolted to the transmission. To start with, you will need to disconnect the battery cable at the positive terminal of the battery, and lay it out of the way. Jack up the front of the car and support with jack stands. You will need another jack and a piece of wood to sit under the oil pan to support the motor, due to the fact that when removing the starter, the bolts through the starter go thru the front motor mount. Disconnect the 2 large wires from the starter solenoid, usually held on with a 13mm nut, and unplug the smaller wire. Remove the upper and lower bolts going thru the starter, into the motor mount, usually a 17mm bolt heads, or an allen head bolts. Pull the starter away from the transmission and remove the starter. You should also replace the small bronze round starter bushing that is mounted in the transmission, where the end of the starter goes in. This bushing often wears out and won't keep the armature shaft from moving when starting the car. When you reinstall the new starter, you may have to jack up or lower down the motor to get the starter bolts started into the front mount. Tighten the 2 17mm starter bolts, and reinstall the 2 large wires on the large terminal on the starter, reconnect the small wire to the solenoid. Remove the jack and piece of wood from underneath the motor. Reconnect the positive battery cable and lower the car down, job done.

My starter keeps seizing on my 94 jeep cherokee. When this happens i can tap it with a wrench and it will start. How do I replace it and do I need to replace the silinoid as well?


actually your starter isn't seizing but likely the brushes are worn and hitting it gives you slightly better contact. The starter unbolts easily. To check the bolt location look at the bolt holes on the replacement and match them to your starter. Make sure to disconnect the positive battery lead from the battery before starting the job. Most rebuilt starters come with the solenoid. Generally the contacts wear at pretty much the same rate as the brushes so It would be foolish to not replace it.
Be careful not to over-tighten the terminals on the solenoid when putting it back together. The cover is plastic and can easily be broken. When mounting the starter, keep it straight and don't tighten one bolt then the other...Rather, semi tighten both and once snug, then do final tightening.

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


2e59350.jpg
Fig. 18: To remove the starter, unbolt the mounting hardware shown-V6 and V8 engines


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

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.

Diesel Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the truck and support it safely on jackstands.
  3. Disconnect and label the wires at the starter motor.
  4. Remove the attaching bolt, nut and washer, then lift the starter and solenoid assembly from the engine.
To install:
  1. Before installing the starter motor, be sure the mounting surface on the drive end housing and the flywheel housing are clean, to ensure good electrical contact.
  2. When tightening the attaching bolt and nut, hold the starter away from the engine to ensure the proper alignment. Tighten the bolts to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  3. Attach the wiring at the starter. Tighten the solenoid connection to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm). Tighten the battery cable at the starter motor to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Attach the negative battery cable.
SOLENOID REPLACEMENT
Chrysler Corp. for 1989-91 models did provide replaceable solenoids for the starter motors covered by this information. However since 1992, the manufacturer no longer recommends replacement of individual components, even if the later unit has the same part number of a formerly serviceable unit. Chrysler now simply calls for replacement of the entire starter assembly if the solenoid is found faulty.

How do i put a tension pully on a 92 honda accord it is missing


The 92 Accord has no tensioner, not should it have. Drive belt tension is provided by moving the belt driven accessories. On some components (alternator, for example) there is a pivot bolt and an adjusting bolt, both of which have to be loosened, then the component is moved away from the engine to put more tension on the belt, and held in place while the adjusting bolt is tightened (then the pivot bolt is tightened). Since there is usually more than one belt, you have to look around in order to determine which components have adjusting bolts (some components actually have a longer bolt which is used, by turning it, to move the component away from the engine and tighten the belt).
I hope this helps you understand the system.

How do you remove the belt from the alternator


There is a tensioning bracket on the alternator

Undo the two fixed bolts , dont take them out , loosen the bolt on the tensioning arm and the whole alternator should swing back to allow the belt to be unshipped

You may need to use a lever to get it to move
