Get the correct starter first off. If your new one has 3 holes, and the old one 2, it is not correct for your vehicle. IF you would like to make it work, use the holes that line up with your old one.

How to remove a starter from a 1999 chevy silverado 4x4 pickup

1) Disconnect Negative Cable on Battery
2) Starters on right-side Close to Trans. Bell Housing
3) Remove the 2-Starter Bolts and Shim if it's
if it has shims.
4) Remove the wires off Solenoid: Mark Them:
5) Remove the Heat Gaurd Over top of Starter:
6) Take Starter on Out.

To Re-Install Reverse the Procedure that you Removed the Starter. NOTE: the Shims if there was any are only nessary if the Casting of the Starter is not Exactly or Close to The Original.

Be sure that All the Wires you Took off the Starter Solenoid are put Back on the Exact Same Terminal. And Snug them up .Be careful not to Over Tighten,:
Specs on Bolts Are :
Torque Starter Battery Cable Nut to 90 inch lbs
Torque Smaller ingnition wier nuts to 18 Inch Lbs
Torque the 2- Starter Mounting Bolts to 35 FOOT lbs.
Remember if your Old Starter Had Shims the New one MIGHT need Shims.All Starters Casting are just a Little Different. like by thousands of an inch. So if you have problems you might have to remove or add shims,they come in different sizes. Hope this has helped you,Please let me know how this solution Helped. Thank You: From d_hubbs

How to change a starter on 1984 chevy c10 with a 305

First disconnect the power cable from the battery. If your starter has a mounting bracket on the nose undo that nut first ( some have, some don't). Undo the nut that holds the battery cable to the starter and remove the wires ( count them so you know how many go back on). Under the truck you have to remove the inspection cover from the front of the transmission next to the motor. Undo the 2 bolts on the bottom of the starter. When these come out the starter will drop so be prepared because you still have 1 wire attached. Ease the starter down and remove the small wire from the inside of the solenoid and take the starter out with you. When you get the rebuilt starter from the autoparts store make sure you get a new solenoid. An old solenoid and a new starter is kind of like recycling used toilet paper, possible but not worth the trouble. It goes back in the reverse of taking it out.
BE CAREFUL putting the small wire back on the new solenoid. It has to be tight but you can easily strip it if you get carried away with it. If by chance that happens just double nut it with the nut from the old one and you'll be okay. Hope this helps.

Not able to reach the wires on my starter on 1996 gmc surburban

Look under the hood on the pass. side and down by the frame you will see the main power wire that runs from the batt. down to the starter.There is a wire clamp that has a 13mm bolt which secures the wire to the frame.Taking this off will allow more slack to pull the starter down further to access the wire.

Starter runs constantly when u connect the battery just replaced the engine in my 99 gmc jimmy. cant find pinched wires, we think its a ground problem. but dont know where to start looking

Check the wire from the battery at the starter there is a tab to keep it from spinning when you tighten the nut,it may be touching the other nut on the solenoid causing the starter to spin.You can also remove the wire on the solenoid that engages it then it should not spin.If it does it is a starter problem
