Scotty love the show. Need help top bolt starter 97 linc twn 4.6 u know the one. How do u get that sob out. Hve read chilton watched peoples u tbes,cant find one of urs on this .no one shows how to do it thy just shw start out and tell u how they supposedly did it. I think the 4.6 is 1 of the best mtrs ford makes . But as usual some damn engenier has to make reppairs difficult. Was i. Heavy and commercial a.c. systems for years as well as other building rehabs voulnter work. School churchs womens shelters and others. And i REALLY BELIEVE that the engeniers that desing these machines should Have to go out in the field and work with us tearing down and rebuilding. The units We would see a whole diff attitude as to mch. Design. If the co.s arnt to cheap to let them P.S. man its good to see some with balls enough to tell it like it is. Im 60 and started working on cars in 4th grade helping out my dad. Taught me there is always a way . over under through around . He Was aProud Marine and taught me well. T
No u would have to have a bore scope to get a pic. This is 1 of those probs that if i hsve worked on u get how hard it is. Some manuals will actually tell u to break off selonoid on stzrter to get to this bolt doesnt help. Others will tell u to pull ac comp out . others a combination of extemtions and universals. Others stubby ratchet. With swivell socket. It is a 10 mil head bolt and i can get a 1/4 in. Socket on it bu there is no room to turn a ratchet. Havs tried diff combos of exts and u jnts. From diff positions cant get it. This is i think 1 of those jobs where if u do them a lot u can say o sure this is the way to do it or if that dont work try this. U know how some mechs can just listen to a car run and know what is wrong with it. I used to be able to diagnose 60% of my a/c customer probs when i was in trade. Course this was after 10 years of 30 in trade. Anyway Really appreciate ur help if u get any info or know some one to refer me to it would be great. If i can ever help U out pleasedont hesatate to call. Also like i said i have some car know how but was ac heat and building rehab untill getting severly hurt and having to get out. Any advice i can give u i woyld be happy to do so. Truth betold i enjoy helping people out. Thanks again . Dan
Without photo tough call. But-- did you try 1/ Heating it. 2/ PB Blaster in multiple applications over a few days? 3/ Can you Nick it w/ loose hacksaw blade, then tap it out w/ nail punch & hammer? 4/ Vice Grips? 5/ Breaker bar...
