Starter replacement mishap
I read up on all the previous post concerning replacing my starter (94). Crap!!!! I went out and purchased the hex socket and had the bp blaster, but I still ended up stripping out the top bolt. I was lucky enough to get the bottom bolt out after using a propane torch to heat it (it was semi strip as well).
I ended up cutting off the top bolt head and was able to get it started out using vice grip, but then it locked up and would not budge. I have blasted it with bp and nothing. So, I decided to drill it out. All was going well when drill bid broke off inside the bolt. I am so screwd right now that I am besides myself. The only other option I see is dropping the tranny and getting to the back side of the bolt.
Any other suggestions???
How hard is it to remove and install tranny?
2 bolts that was all I was trying to remove and now I am deep into it. I just can't believe it. My plan now, unless someone has a brilliant idea, is to remove the tranny, drill bolt from back end and then extract or use a longer bolt with nut.
