Newbie in distress
Hey folks, I hope one of you know what needs to be done and the library is closed to study chilton. I have a '97 F-250 7.3l powerstroke, and the starter is shot. My problem is that I can't get the starter removed; there are 3 mounting bolts and 3 nuts for wiring. One of the mounting bolts seems impossible to remove. It almost looks like I need to take out the header or find a new tool (that I can't think of) in order to to move socket, or wrench. it is tight between frame and header. I am going at it from the bottom under the truck, seems to be the only way to access the starter. Does any one know what I am doing wrong, or what I need to do? Hope there is a smart mechanic that knows how to direct me. My feer is having to take it to the shop and then be told I need new heads and manifold, and etc. Thanks alot guys, all help is appreciated.
