Default Use super glue and stud for easy starter replacement

I seen mention of putting studs into the transaxle to mount the starter to and i did that , holds it up very well. With my old geriatric hands i couldn't get the nut started on the top out of sight stud. I superglued the nut inside the socket and probed for 30 seconds till i could feel it on the stud and presto its on. Give a couple shakes and the socket breaks free of the nut. Just need to know if anyones actually got the bolt in that top hole with the intake still on as it seems like an impossibility.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I've done it a number of times. I always think I'll do the stud and nut trick next time...

It is not that hard actually. Put starter into position and run lower bolt in just finger tight then install top bolt. Starter sets into the bell housing face and that locates it. It helps if the bolts are actually clean and the holes are brushed out.

Same here, and I still haven't gotten around to getting a stud...

<-- this car and duct tape have a long and distinguished history, so I try and use a little duct tape in every repair

I used duct tape to hold the top bolt onto the socket while I poked around trying to find the hole and get the bolt started in.
