I have a 97 GMC 350 vortec that the starter motor kicks back. Its been at the locl shop know for a week Figured I'd research it a little


what exactly do you mean by "kicks back"
IN all engines if the engine fires hard against the rotation of the starter motor, it indicates that the ignition timing is way too far advanced
GM products are around the 10 -12 DEgrees BTDC static timing and any thing over that will cause problems
If the timing is right then I would be considering replacing the crank position sensor and/or the ignition control module

Ok I am wondering if my motor in my 91 gmc 5.7 l b8 is a vortec or a 350 it has throttle body carb and not sure thought if I could interchange it with an older 350 ..


Here, is what I think you are asking. The TBI intake from a 91 will fit the same size engine from 88 to 95. The Vortec didn't come out till 96 I believe. So if your 91 is the original engine then it is not a Vortec motor. If you want to swap your 5.7 with another 5.7 (5.7 = 350) Then the 88-95 should work, Just double check your sensors and locations as the plugs may be different and or in different locations. I know my 88 GMC and my 94 chevy (both K1500's) were a little different. Hope this helps.

Have replaced starter 4 times . it kicks back and cracks the starter at the nose . 1986 gmc sierra 350 , v8


On some models of general motors starter shims are required to maintain
the recommended clearance between the starter and flywheel.
If not, then the starter will hang on the flywheel after motor is started and
damage it (The teeth are bottoming out when this occurs). They sell starter shims at
the auto parts store.
Hope this helps.

What type of oil pump is on 1999 GMC Yukon V8 5.7L 350? Is it 3/8 or 5/4, I am getting the motor rebuilt.


If you are referring to the pickup screen tube size, it would be either a 3/4inch or a 5/8 inch Most rplacement pumps use the 3/4. If in doubt, buy the pump and pickup at the same time and get both of them in the same size.
