Recommended Posts

trying to acquire a 67 fleetwood...in a field of course...solenoid is dead so im gonna at least swap that if not the whole starter...so is it worth doing this in a field or should i drag it into a garage first?

There is nothing easy about changing a starter on a 1960's G.M. motor under any circumstances! :rolleyes:

At least you won't have to work around headers too.

I don't recall starters on our 62, 64, 65, 66, 68 Caddy's being hard to change. Put a piece of plywood down, use jack stands for safety and change it. Make sure your car is raised SAFELY on the dirt, put something down first to stop the jack from being pushed into the dirt. Those are heavy cars, you would be best to use a garage floor jack and safety jacks. The dirt would concern me just take precautions.

Its three bolts if I recall in some cases, there is a bracket, connecting it to the block in come cases, and the wires to the solenoid.

You can try hitting it with a hammer if you can reach it (have someone hold the key on) it may get you out of the field. Changing it out isn't hard but its not fun either ;)
