    The last starter I dropped was on a F-250 diesel. Can anyone tell me how to drop the start on a 1985 K5 blazer with a Th350 tranny? where are the bolts that hold it on?
    Thanks

    0. ensure that the starter is bad by troubleshooting
    1. on hook neg terminal on battery
    2.locate starter on passenger side of engine block
    3.Romove 2 bolts that secure starter to block
    4. when starter is away from engine block, remove wires on solenoid
    5.If any shims are present, intall with new starter.
    6. installation is reverse of removal
    7. return old starter to parts store for core


    Total time......30 minutes

    Is this what you wanted??

    When you look on the bottom of the engine on the passenger side, towards the rear, you will see the 2 bolts as plain as day unless you have lots of dirt, grease, etc hiding them.


    Its really easy, and when you go look at it, you will realize it.

    should only be 2 bolts that bolt the starter to the engine block on the pass side. They are easily seen from underneath right at the back of the motor just before the tranny

    The 2 bolts are the easy part, getting all the wires off the front of the starter solinoid can be the bitch about the whole job. It isn't that hard to do though. Drop it out and have the parts store check it for you.
