STARTER MOTOR REPLACEMENT
It is of utmost importance that the starter support, cradle, and U-bolt
be installed in a manner that will not disturb starter alignment and
still furnish adequate support to minimize vibration. Perform step 2
in the sequence as written. Misalignment of 0.010-inch in any
direction is sufficient to cause a leak (pressure loss) between the
starter mounting flange and the starter housing.
2. Install starter support bracket (10).
a. Position starter support bracket (10) and cradle (27) as an assembly on oil pan and secure
using three screws (8) with flat washers (9).
b. Tighten only until screw (8) heads engage washers (9) (finger tight).
c. Loosen four screws (33) allowing free movement between cradle (27) and support (10).
d. Position U-bolt (26) over starter (23) and secure to cradle (27) with two clamping bars (25)
and new self-locking nuts (24) (item 282, WP 0175) assuring that cradle (27) sits flat on
support (10). Tighten nuts (24) evenly.
e. Tighten four screws (33) securing cradle (27) to support (10).
f. Tighten three screws (8) securing starter support (10) to oil pan. Fourth screw will be
installed with ground straps.
