    oh make sure you remove the bottom bolt 1st then the top bolt or you could break the ears off the starter reassemble with top bolt then bottom.

Changed starter and ignition switch on 350 with HEI, I lost all power from switch and it shorts the battery to completely dead. I got the problem from someone else who installed the motor. It is in a 68...

Not sure I follow you. Are you going to rewire the key switch power source back to the starter post ?
And the truck is actually a 1968 instead of a 1986 ?

Sounds to me that your starter is gone. There is one thing you can do, try tapping ya starter and then try starting the car. If it starts then you have what is called a dead spot in ya starter. The only fix for this is a new starter. Make sure that you dont have a bad wire going to your starter also. Hope this helps.

68 mustang new sylenoid, starter,battery. No power. Checked every wire everything seems to look ok. Any ideas would be helpful

Rechecked all battery connections? Check the fusible link or links in the wiring around or near the battery, maybe off the fender mounted relay. Fusible links are old time variants of regular fuses. If they burn out, they can be cut out and replaced. As part of the power distribution, they are near the battery source.

When you installed the starter you may have inadvertently put the gears in a bind. Make sure the bendix meshes properly with the flywheel. The bendix is the small gear on the starter that slides out and connects with the flywheel when the ignition key is turned.

Need a wiring diagram for 1986 ford mustang 4cyl engine. Helping a friend with his 4cylinder mustang and when i installed the negative terminal on the battery then as i place the positive terminal it...


You may have the positive cable hooked in the wrong side of the starting selenoid or the starter selenoid is defective.

Follow the RED (+) cable from the battery, it goes to the starter selenoid wich has two terminals, change the cable to the other terminal, that should take care of the problem unless the selenoid is stuck on. Replacement runs about $15.

Check your cables and ends. If you have to, pull starter out and bench test it with a set of jumper cables. Before you pull it, jump the solonoid with a piece of wire and see if it activates the starter. Be sure you have a good battery.
