Place car on ramps or on jack stands so front end is up. Disconnect battery - negative side first. From under car, remove wires on starter (starter will be on front side of engine at transmission) then remove bolts holding starter to block. To remove it you'll have to rotate and twist it a bit to get it out. Clean all mounting surfaces. Clean bolt threads. Clean all wiring connectors. Reverse procedure to install new starter. Clean battery cable connectors and battery posts. Connect positive side of battery first, then negative. Crank it up and drive on...

We are building a 454, every time we finally get the engine to turn over the brand new starter breaks, we have been through 3 new starters now. What could be wrong?


Turn the engine by hand from the front main pulley. Something is binding in the engine, maybe you will hear it.

1965 mustang starter fires but won't engage flywheel. it is a brand new starter


Doesn't matter. The forks inside the starter may be missing or broke off or bad spring in starter that pushes the gear out. Try new started. Starter may have to be shimmed to make contact with flywheel. Starter may be kicking out but not engaging flywheel.

My 87 jeep starter stays ingaged when I try to start it


needs shimmed or the bendix is bad in the starter and not allowing to release. most likely just needs shimmed if it's a new starter, however you can get a bad starter (new or rebuilt)

1988 460 motorhome starting problem


When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

How do I install a new starter in a 93 Dodge Ram van B-250 8 cyl.


Park van so that you can safely access the starter. I use ramps under front wheels and put it in park and set the parking brakes. Disconnect positive battery cable at battery, disconnect starter battery cable and ignition wires from starter solenoid (remember terminal locations as these will attach to new starter solenoid). Remove old starter. Replace with new starter. Re-attach wiring in reverse order.

Starter drags???


it sounds like the new starter is faulty , I would suggest having it checked by a service shop or a starter rebuild shop, most parts supply stores dont charge for this test but you will have to remove the starter from the truck.
