How many bolts did you remove?If there is a overhead cam,then there are more likely more bolts under the cam.look for brackets bolted to the head and the block also.

How do you change thermostat?

Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead to the thermostat housing, bolted to the engine with two screws. Remove the two screws, along with the section of metal pipe that the radiator hose is bolted to, remove old thermostat, replace with new thermostat and proper rubber gasket. Bolt housing and metal pipe back onto engine.

hi clarence,

first of all you need to know what is the starter in order to remove it. if you can trace the big wire that comes from the positive wire of your battery to a big round thing at the bottom part of the engine. that round thing is the starter. before you start removing bolts, remove first that big wire from the positive terminal of the battery. it is normally bolted to the engine by three or two bolts. there are two wires that you need to remove first before removing the starter. a big wire from the battery and a small wire that controls the solenoid of the starter. after you remove the wire, remove the bolts that is holding the starter in place and the starter would drop down. the you can repalce it or repair it.

i hope i was able to solve your problem. please rate me.. tnx.
