PostSubject: Installing a new starter...   Wed Aug 12, 2015 7:05 pm

I have a '92 RMW.

It died a few weeks ago and I am now just getting to fixing it with the intent to sell the car.

When I turn the key, it clicks, but no start. The battery is strong. My Father in law suggests it is the starter.

The Haynes manual makes it look like a 14 minute job, except there is an exhaust pipe in the way.

Does that exhaust pipe need to come out? I can see no other way to take the old starter out with that pipe in the way.

Thanks for the help.

You have to remove the suspension brace. The frame bolts are difficult to access. I have done it with a ratchet and a box end. You have to get the box end inside of the frame.

You could drop the exhaust, but you have to unbolt both sides for it to drop. Getting the frame brace out of the way is easier.

In the LT1 dual exhaust cars, the frame brace is welded in.

Fred,

Thanks! I was wondering about that brace, too.

I appreciate the info.
