Question about Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

Starter engagement i'v been having a problem w/starters in my small block chevy 383 stroker. i put a ram flywheel-clutch-pressure plate assembly on this motor from the get go. i'v had nothing but trouble with starters ever since. i'v had the factory starter on---i'v had a gear reducer type starter on and i'v had a power master starter on. all of them just seem like they just want to catch the begining of the tooth on the ring gear and it dosen't take long to take the edge of the teeth off the ring gear. my question is ----do they make a starter w/different length noses on them? i have a scat crank with a ram flywheel. is the distence different between the stock crank and flywheel and the scat crank and ram flywheel creating a problem w/how far the starter can engage??????

Yes it is. As for the starter issue the company/supplier of the crank and flywheel should be able to direct you to the proper starter to make up for that difference otherwise you will either keep having this issue or go back to the stock setup

My 99 accord wont shift into gear while its on but will when its off its a 5 speed. This happened after i parked it However the last thing i did was go though a flooded parking lot to get to my spot


If it is a manual then the water from the flood has probably rusted the pressure plate to the flywheel and pressure plate
if that is the case you will have to break that rust face
It can be done by stopping the engine , placing in 1st gear , depressing the clutch (keeping it depressed )then turn the starter switch to start for a second ( don't keep the starter engaged for longer than the second or starter damage could result
there will be a jump of the car until the clutch plate comes free
Talk with an accredited service shop if that doesn't work as the box may have to come out to un-stick the clutch plate

HOW DO YOU TELL IF MY CHEVY 350 NEEDS A METRIC STARTER


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.

Sounds like you have a bad starter drive gear assembly (the gear on the starter that engages the flywheel gear). The drive gear has a one way clutch to prevent spinning the starter with the flywheel on engine start. When the clutch goes bad it does not spin the starter drive gear. If that's the case you can replace the starter drive rather than the whole starter, and you should also check the flywheel gear teeth to make sure none are broken or worn excessively.

One problem pops into head when I think about your description of the problem. The bolts that hold the pressure plate to the flywheel may be too long, causing the engine block to interfere with the rotation of the flywheel.

How to fit a new clutch into a ford escort 1300cc 1994


1991-96 Models
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the transaxle assembly.
  4. If the clutch assembly is to be reused, matchmark the pressure plate and the flywheel so they can be assembled in the same position.
  5. Install flywheel holding tool T84P-6375-A or equivalent, in a transaxle mounting hole on the engine and engage the tooth of the holding tool into the flywheel ring gear.

  1. Loosen the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts one turn at a time, in a crisscross pattern, until the spring tension is relieved, to prevent pressure plate cover distortion.
  2. Support the pressure plate and unfasten the retaining bolts. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc from the flywheel.

If the flywheel shows any signs of overheating (blue discoloration) or if it is badly grooved or scored, it should be refaced or replaced.
  1. Inspect the flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing, pilot bearing and the clutch fork for wear. Replace parts as needed.

To install:
  1. If removed, install a new pilot bearing using a suitable installation tool.
  2. If removed, install the flywheel. Make sure the flywheel and crankshaft flange mating surfaces are clean. Tighten the flywheel retaining bolts to 71-76 ft. lbs. (96-103 Nm) on the 1.8L engine or 54-67 ft. lbs. (73-91 Nm) on the 1.9L engine.
  3. Clean the pressure plate and flywheel surfaces thoroughly. Position the clutch disc and pressure plate into the installed position and support them with a dummy shaft or clutch aligning tool. If the clutch assembly is being reused, align the matchmarks that were made during the removal procedure.
  4. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts in the correct sequence to 13-20 ft. lbs. (18-26 Nm). Remove the alignment tool.

  1. If the release bearing was removed, lubricate the release fork where it contacts the bearing and install the bearing in the fork.
  2. Install the transaxle assembly.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Bleed the hydraulic clutch system, if needed.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Road test the vehicle and check the clutch for proper operation.
