The bar is simply a brace. On one that old, it may be difficult to get from a dealer but you may find one in a scrapyard. Problem is that to save time, many techs used to leave it off when changing the starter...Most will work without it but if the engine kicks back due to a bit of moisture in the distributor cap or any other item that can cause a cross-fire, if it's not in place the starter nose will break.
If you can't find one you could actually make one using a piece of steel Any support there is better than none at all..

I am replacing the starter on my 350 chevy motor, in a 1984 cj7. I took the starter out, purchased new, and can not get the bolt holes to line up


on Chevy small blocks there only two bolt patterns one with off set holes and one with straight across bolt holes
i ran across this same problem a while ago starter that was suppose to fit my motor according to part stores was the offset bolt pattern but motor actually had straight across bolt pattern i had to go back to i think like a 1969 motor to get straight across bolt pattern even but i know motor wasn't that old

if you have the correct bolt pattern make sure the starter not hitting on something (frame, headers, tranny lines etc.) if clearance is the issue you might need to go with a smaller starter (they work just as well but the starter motor it self is smaller in diameter) the smaller starter might not have as much power as the bigger one but shouldn't be a problem as long as your not running a extremely high compression motor

(the following is untested by my self but good friend that drag races says it true)
My friend Drag race car uses a starter off a 4.3L Chevy vortex motor( 6 cyl motor found in blazers, S10 etc) And it turns over his High compression drag race small block and gives him the clearance he needs.

I have a 1995 Chevy blazer.How difficult is it to change a starter?I loosened the two bolts to take it out and doesn't seem to come out of the space.Does it just come out or do I need to take off...


If it's a high torque (small-body) starter like the one that I used to have you have to take the front passenger's side wheel off, open the little access cover, take off the bolts (I think you have to get under the car to do one of the bolts) and then disconnect the wiring (should be two or three wires). Then it's just a matter of guiding the thing out of there. The trick is to wiggle the starter around till you can fit it out between the engine, transmission, and frame. If you have a skid plate,your going to have to remove it. Just take your time so you can remember how to wiggle the new starter back in. Good luck and wear gloves.

Trying to put sway bar bushings in the sway bar on 1991 chevrolet k5 or full size blazer where the sway bar bolts to the top of the spring pack and can not figure it out


ok you have me confused? Your sway bar should be attached to your frame and your "LOWER CONTROL ARMS" via sway bar bushings.

78' k5 blazer wont shift into 2wd


You have to stop the truck and put it in natural. It should go into 2 wheel drive then. If you have lock outs make sure that they are unlocked.
