Just looking in the service manual and it seems the starters on our cars are unique in some respects.

3.8L Vin 7 G series, 10MT starter, 45 min. and 75 max. amps., 8,600 and 12,900 rpm limits.

3.8L Vin A G series, 10MT starter, 60 min. and 90 max. amps., 6,500 and 10,500 rpm limits.

So I guess the originals were efficient high rpm units?

Anyone know any more about 'em?

So you admit to NOT knowing about the special turbo windings in the starters eh?

Wonder if Bosch knew...

Tell us how you really feel!


That's what you get for driving your TR in the winter.

I hope I don't forget this, and complain about it being too cold here to work on the cars or I know who I'll hear from.

I surmise the afternoon sun finally warmed up the trailer enough for you to come out and play.

However, that plastic Superhero cape you're wearing came from a cereal box mail away......

Welllll, it's in there and even works.


No shims needed thanks to allah err allan.


What a PITA!!! Coulda paid one hour labor for someone to do it on a lift.
Ended up roaching my cheap Canadian made
Exide battery charger so I'm out $39.00 there and one hour labor is about $50.
Plus it took me 3 hours plus to do it.


Soooo, I am a duma$$.

Hey I didn't really have to fix it got the GN to drive. But it was 43 and almost sunny today so I tried.

Here's what's REALLY needed to change a starter in the driveway.

1. Jack the car up safely as high as you can get it, I used 2 safety jacks after that.
2. Take off the converter shield 2-4 bolts whatever is left holding it in place
.
3. Take out the crossover bolts on the starter side and greatly loosen the ones on the drivers side to get it to swivel nicely.
4. Get the 2 bolts out of the starter.
5. Somehow with a lot of swearing and all move the starter so you can bend the heat shield all the way up contacting the header. Bend move the tranny lines out of the way and try to get the starter to drop down hanging by the wires.
6. Try to get wrenches on the nuts holding the wires in place. Lift up on the starter so the eyelets don't bend up and get in your way and in the way of the wrench.
7. Try and get the starter out after that by manipulating it around the tranny lines.
8. Put the new one in there in reverse order and shim it if there were shims.

Boy that really sucked. Coulda went to a Patriot's game and swore less.

Didn't even get to look at the motor mount install I was gonna do too.


Miller time...

I went out and crawled under one of mine and looked at it...it looked like the tranny lines were the worst part..I could not decide if the cross over had to move or not.
