Question about 1985 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

I have a 1985 Camaro Berlinetta with a unknown 305 in it. The noise on the starter broke in half I took it out it's for a 1980 Impala. I tried a 1985 Camaro starter no luck. I put a new 1980 impala starter it worked great for a couple weeks than the noise broke in half. The starter I'm thinking will work is for 1978 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham.

If I remember correctly, there were two noses for those starters, either should work as the difference was that on one both bolts were long, the other used a long and short one.
The one thing that may be missing there is that both starters used a front support bracket that either fastened to the case or to one long bolt that holds the starter together that had a short threaded extension on it. the other end of the bracket attaches to the engine block. Under load, that bracket keeps the starter from trying to tilt up and break.
Another thing that can break the nose is an ignition cross-fire. that can shock the housing and also give you that problem. Make sure the ignition wires are good as well as the cap and rotor.

Can I interchange a 1980-1985,305 chevy engine with a 1991 305 chevy?


as it is the basic 305 block the differences may be fuel injection over carburettor which may require sensor attachments but basically the engine should just slot in place.
