    Starter installation-gctid823765

    Barely had enough strength to remove the port starter (eh700t 4588 '88). Any tips on installing this behemoth after rebuild?

    One thing to try is longer bolts with the heads cut off and some flats ground in. These will act as studs to hold the starter in relative position while you install the bolts swapping out the studs as you go along. If there's a way to suspend the starter or even hoist it in place, even better.

      It has a permanent stud on top once you get it in place. I was thinking of using a blanket. Bc of the restricted space, once the starter is installed I would be able to remove it.

        Here's what I did to brace the starter before installation.

          Well, for anyone curious about this in the future I used small pieces of wood which I passed under the engine. I then put a towel on top to get closer.
