An easy fix, accessability may be your only frustration. Disconnect your battery cables. Then locate the starter and disconnect the wiring from old unit. Locate the 2 mounting bolts and take them out. you can now remove your old starter. Position the new one and re-install your mounting bolts and the wiring connections. You may now re-connect the battery and start up your Olds. Good Luck. I hope you find this to be very helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: installing a starter on a 1965 delta 88 dont know

There should be one large stud that the batter positive cable goes to. There should be a small stud marked with the letter, it gets the wire from the ignition switch which is usally green. If there is a small stud marked R it is usally left vacant but is sometimes used as a coil feed. There may be sevaral red wires or other colors which are fusible links and go on the battery term of the starter. Place the battery cable on the stud first and these on the top of it.
Good luck

Disconnect the positive Battery cable (You will lose radio and seat settings and wipe computer memory clean) Remove the two 15MM bolts and lower starter down and out of the transmission starter well mark wires to which posts they go then unhook wires do not lose the shims if it has shims, they are important keeps starter from staying engaged after motor starts. Installation is reverse order.

Starter tested good. i put it back in and still nothing

battery or ignition switch perhaps?

You can jump the starter on the car to confirm it has the juice to crank. Then you need to check the wires out of the starter key switch to see if you have juice coming out. You could also check at the starter relay.

1999 oldsmobile delta battery changed but won't power on

If everything else checks out Ok in the ignition system (electrical) and if the engine and transmission turn freely,that sound like you might have starter drag.Check to see if you have good connections at the starter.I know its new but check your battery for 12 volts,good connections,ect.
