Starter removal

Any help would be great. I need some advise on removing the top bolt on my starter. It is frozen in there and I'm ready to set the truck on fire.

Thanks

Hunter

I've used a couple on extensions, just long enough to get to the front of the starter. Put the other bolts (easy ones to get to) back in then remove the top one.

IIRC correctly there are only 3 bolts that hold it on and 2 for the wiring. The starter is heavy, so be ready for it when it breaks free.

And disconnect the batteries first, else you'll have a firework show going on down there.

Put some breakfree on it last night, hope it comes off. Getting tired of beating it with a hammer before starting.

Got it done. What a *****. The old stroker fires like it was new. It sat all night in 30 degree and didn't turn for more then a second or 2.

Good to hear. Just going by your post count are you new to diesels or just to this site?
