How Do I Remove Starter Motor Bracket On Tii

I did a lot of forum searching and wasn't able to get a definitive answer on how exactly to get this thing off. One of the bolts appears nearly impossible to get off.

 

Do I have to remove the entire throttle linkage arms?

 

Thanks in advance!

IIRC, the bolt securing the ground cable only goes thru the bracket, not into the block.

The bolt in the corner of the bracket goes into the engine block.

 

To change the starter:

Disconnect battery

Remove air cleaner assembly

Unclip horizontal rod from firewall pivot to block pivot.

Remove (2) nuts securing the starter support studs to the vertical bracket.

Remove (2) upper bolts securing vertical bracket from block to throttle body.

Remove (1) lower bolt securing vertical bracket to engine block.

Tilt bracket away from starter.

 

Remove starter  - same procedure as carb'd 2002s.

 

Edited adding two more steps as commented by Bill W.

There may be two nuts securing the old starter to the bracket also.

 

Disconnect the battery too.

 

Jim, as usual, is correct on the larger bolts, one most forward only holds the ground strap and only goes through the bracket. The rear most one, holds the bracket to the block.

Fantastic! I had no idea only one bolt actually connected to the block. SO much easier.

 

Thanks a ton
