to ALL

so helpful to have these handy reminders on this site. Do a starter every 10 years and always forget the "TRICK" after bruising knuckles -- removed oil filter and sending unit and came right out


You ALL are the BEST


thanks

When I put the starter in the second one, I got a suggestion to weld a tab onto the head of the bolt about 1.5" long and it would catch against the bell housing and remove the need to fit a wrench on the back side of the upper bolt. I had to pull the starter a couple of times to get at the transmission, and found I could pull a Stag starter in about 15 minutes on a cold car. I have since done this to every car I have as it makes life easier later.

Pretty good idea.
