Cannot remove starter

#1

Post by dn29626 »

I believe my starter has gone bad.
The (gear reduction) starter is unbolted from the engine. It is loose, but i cannot find the clearance to get it free. Do i need to remove the engine mount?

If i can locate a direct drive starter, am i better off using it?

I changed my gear reduction starter for a direct drive about 12-13 years ago. I don't think I would ever change back. Faster starts in any weather, especially when cold. You must have a battery with a large reserve capacity, and good cables.

Advance Auto has a Hitachi DD starter available. Their pn 70337001692. I ordered it today. Hitachi came off so i want Hitachi to go back on. Just without GR.
I went in to purchase a different starter and asked the clerk to check brands available . I am suprised it was listed.

Napa and Advance Auto are the only two stores i could find DD starters listed as available on their web sites.

just takes some gentle persuasion.. and twisting of the starter just right..

my bet is you posted up the day before the website crashed. there was a time when i couldnt access it..
