You are correct, you have 2 bolts to remove, one on starter side and one on transmission bell housing side, With the battery disconnected put a socket on the crank pulley use a breaker bar and turn the engine forward a little bit to see if you can break the starter loose that way, it almost sounds like the starter is stuck in the engaged position on the flywheel, so by moving the engine a little bit from the crank side might help the starter disengage from the flywheel. DO NOT use a hammer or crow bar, you will only end up breaking the transmission housing then it'll get really expensive.
It can be your mounting house for your spark plugs how to change it ?how to cheak it ? Well there should be 2 or 3 bolts holding it take the bolts out turn on your truck and remove it like you would if it was a cap in the inside should spin if doesent then thats another problem it wouldn't be your mounting house that will be a snapped little belt in the inside of motor not really sure what's it called. So back to your mounting house disconnect all ur spark plugs only connected to the mounting house ( remember we're they go) then remove the bolts and put the new one
The starter is under the vehicle on the passenger side. The best way is to turn your wheels to the left so you can reach the top of the starter solenoid behind the passenger tire. First undo the nuts from the solenoid terminals, second loosen the bolts holding the bell housing for the flywheel and slide it over enough to make room, third undo the starter mounting bolts and the starter should come out easier. And just reverse the steps for installation.
<0001> Disconnect negative battery cable. Raise and suppor t vehicle. Disconnect electrical wiring from starte r solenoid. Remove mounting bracket and wiring from b rush end of starter. Remove skid plate (if equipped ). Remove 2 brakeline-to-crossmember brackets. <0001> Remove 6 crossmember bolts and remove crossmember. Remove transmission cooler line-to-flywheel housing bracket. Remove brace rod to flywheel housi ng. Remove lower flywheel housing cover (if necessa ry). <0001> Remove starter bolts. Note location and number of s hims for reassembly. Remove starter. To install, re verse removal procedure.
I don't see how the noise you hear could be coming from the water pump or radiator but yes it could be coming from not having the starter shimmed out far enough from the ring gear. Did you change the starter or do anything prior to hearing this noise?
I have managed to open the harmonic damper bolt. This bolt opens in the counter clockwise rotation. A breaker bar was used with the flywheel locked in place. In order to get to the flywheel, the starter motor was removed to get access. The manual suggest removing the bell housing plate. This takes more effort and one of side engine mount also need removal. I decided to remove the starter motor instead. In order to remove the starter motor, first remove the cables from the starter motor and three mounting bolts. Secure a rod or a screw driver between the flywheel and bell housing through a hole in the flywheel. The size of the size is about 1/2". This hole was visible when the engine is set to TDC (top dead center).There could be more than one hole but I did not try to rotate the engine to find out. Once the rod or the screw driver in place in the flywheel, use the 22mm socket head and breaker bar and undo the harmonic damper bolt counter clockwise (CCW).I believe an impact air gun could do this job as well.The spec on the bolt is 100 ft lbs torque - Hendry
