Hi Anonymous, well you can start by disconecting your battery negative cable, draining the primary and removing the cover. Bend back the lock tab on the jackshaft bolt and remove by holding the pinion gear. Next remove all cables and wires connected to the starter. Remove the two starter bolts. You may or may not have remove oil tank mounts to raise it a little to get the starter to come out. Take your time, be patient, and keep your eye on the details. Good luck

Replacement of the starter

Hi Peter, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Peter, replacing a starter is easy, there are a few things to remember. (1) Always unhook the negative battery cable before removing the starter. (2) Be sure to reinstall the spacer if it has one, if it doesn't have a spacer no need to worry. (3) Some other things may need to be removed to get the starter out. NOTE: Some do, some don't, a good rule of thumb is to try an remove the starter first to see what must be removed, if anything. Some starters are held on by 2 bolts and others have 3 bolts. You need to remove the nut holding the positive battery cable to the back of the starter, then remove the wire and connector from the back of the starter, then remove the bolts holding the starter in position. Take the starter out and install the new one. That's all there is to it. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website here:

How do i remove a 1982 kawasaki kz 1000 starter motor

Follow the specific instructions in the Factory Service Manual. Step 1 - Remove the heavy wire from the starter solenoid. Either end will suffice. Step 2 - Remove the chrome cover over the starter. Step 3 - remove the screws that hold the starter motor in place. Step 4 - Lift the starter motor out of the engine. NOTE: removing the carbs may make this step simpler. The "business" end of the starter should come out of the splined starter clutch gear. If you have trouble removing the starter from the clutch gear, you may need to remove the left side stator cover to gain access to the starter clutch and chain.

I am ignorant and cant find the starter

Don't feel that way Brian. Not everyday you need to locate the starter on a car.
Even the trade guys need to look for stuff on cars. It's easier for us when we have the information.

Anyway, getting on to your problem.
It is at the front of the engine down low beside the oil pan.
It is even hard to get a look at on a hoist from below. Lots of stuff in the way on this one.
Here is a diagram.

To replace will need some time and patience.
  1. Disconnect the battery negative cable.
  2. Raise and suitably support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the front lower air deflector.
  4. Remove the starter solenoid S terminal nut.
  5. Remove the starter solenoid S terminal wiring harness connector at the starter motor.
  6. Remove the starter solenoid BAT terminal nut.
  7. Remove the starter solenoid BAT terminal wiring harness connector at the starter motor.
  8. Remove the torque converter cover.
  9. Remove the starter bolts. Remove the shims, if necessary.
  10. Remove the starter motor.
  11. Reverse procedure to reinstall.
There you are. I hope the job goes well.
Ask me if you need further help with this.

Need to replace starter on a 1986 Camaro, but cannot get the old starter past the exhaust pipe.

Removing the starter
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect all wiring from the starter solenoid. Replace each nut as the connector is removed (as thread sizes differ from connector to connector). Note or tag the wiring positions for installation.
  4. Remove the bracket from the starter and the two mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter.
  5. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter front end first, and then remove the unit from the car.
These are the steps for removing the starter on the Camaro. Did you remove the bracket? Hope this helped and best wishes.
