Did this video help you?

Kcirrab157: I absolutely LOVE your videos! I have a 1994 Chevrolet Caprice and this video got me to get a Vette starter when my starter went out today and I LOVE it!! Keep them comin!

Leroy Hogwash: I am impressed you did that in -8 weather.

ChevyBM: That sucks during the winter. I replaced the starter motor on my 91 caprice in Finland two winters ago, it was -30 degrees Celsius outside, my fingers were almost numb for the rest of the day...

DETROITGOODIES: would this starer work on my 1991 caprice classic?....i keep going through stupid starters every yr i have had it? i have the same sounding click just happened today :( ...................

ghtowagon: Corvette starter replacement is a cool mod!

Turbo231: @ghtowagon Oh neat...did not know that existed. Thanks!

ncrdisabled Submarine vet: Wow that is a hardcore repair.

1E55: Hi I'm going to attempt this on a 94 Ta with a powermaster mastertorque starter. Did you have to shim the unit or prepare the area at all before install?

Turbo231: @24preacherboy Yeah, it sucked but at the same time the brake master cylinder of our other car I couldn't wait for warmer weather.

lue1975lue: Sounds good.

stlouissux9119: Nice, easy repair.

Turbo231: @Maheekun I think 1992 was the year I picked...needs to be an LT1 RPO corvette...I got mine from napa and used my old starter as a core, you'll be looking for a cross reference to OEM GM part number 10455709. If you want the napa number I can get it for you, its just deep in a receipt pile. FYI, over a year later and still working great...makes starting the car seem effortless.

Maheekun: @Turbo231 thank you for that, i was hoping to get it at Napa because they the closest to this hamlet. I was looking into getting a geared starter in the near future but that came today because my starter crapped out this afternoon, only 9mnths old and solenoid is fried.

Omar Chisolm: @Turbo231 Ur just like me i work on my car in the rain, snow, whatever lol. True warrior man =D

us1776: thankyou for your video,my starter just failed,gunna do what you did,ps put a lower viscosity fluid in your power steering pump,again thanks

vettedude418: No joke, my dad had a c4 corvette with an LT1, i have FOREVER loved the sound of that starter more than most things on that car. What starter is this? I love it!

Turbo231: @1E55 Nope...if your unit came with shims, I would reuse them, but out of the box, just bolt it up there. Only if you detect a very weird noise or something along those lines, then maybe. Did some research before I did this switch and 99% of the people had no problems.

rhkips: Hehe, yup, you've got a bit of power steering pump noise, there~ -8F, though, I'm not surprised in the least. Automotive fluids weren't built for those kind of temperature extremes. ;-) I must say, you have a very pleasant and clear voice! Think I'm gonna have to subscribe, here. :-D

LordKilluminati: Wow u should use foam when it's cold in ur on the ground

SpliffSized: YES!! never in a million years would i have thought you where canadian, not to mention fellow albertan. ONLY CANADIANS know if its really cold outside.

TLOU386: I have a 350 4 bolt main an I've been having trouble in the past with my starter working for a couple days then start to grind,I've tried shimming it but still no luck,do u think the corvette starter will solve my problems

Turbo231: @vettedude418 Its just a Napa rebuild of a 1994 Chevy Corvette LT1 starter...VIN P I think, the non DOHC one. Fits Caprice L99 and LT1's with ease. A very nice upgrade especially since the gear reduction, giving the starter more power for the higher compression corvette engine, really spins the lower compression caprice.

SuperMachine777: great job ! the winding noise made me go "whoa what happened" (LOL) but awesome job i plan to put one of these starters on myself, the price is some much better compared to the stock starter price .

francisfairypants: I am trying to replace my starter as well. I inadvertently pulled loose a wire but I didn't see where that wire was attached to. It's a small green wire contained within an aluminum heat sheath bundled with the starter wires. I believe it's the one you mentioned in the video as the small wire to the frame. Can you tell me if that wire was a tiny green one?

SpliffSized: i take that back..what i mean to say if a canadian says its cold..its freakin freezing.

Turbo231: No...a corvette starter is an upgrade, not really a fix unless your current starter is broken.

nnarcel215: im gonna go n try n change my starter

SVPrelude: Mine keeps grinding. If I hit it a few times it works. What does that mean?

Leroy Hogwash: @Turbo231 I am lucky I have a shop to work in. Check out my trackless train video. Nice and warm with lifts too.

Turbo231: @ghtowagon I'm not worried about's usually only loud when it's below 0F and if the car hasn't run. It really used to be an issue however since I got the block heater and it keeps things warmer under the hood, it's a moot issue. Thanks for the suggestion and will check out your video. :)

ghtowagon: @Turbo231 GM cold climate PS fluid might also cure its noise. Its expensive.

Turbo231: Good idea...less the ground and more the air.

Leroy Hogwash: You are too cool. I had to replace the starter in my lt1 caprice and after this vid I decided to do what you did. I went to the parts store and the starter for my car was 169.00 and I remembered your video so I checked on the corvette starter and it was 119.00! I got the corvette starter and just tugged on the hot wire a little to get it over to the hot post. Turned key and had cool sounding starter/engine combo! Thanks again you saved me 60 bucks!

Turbo231: No. Excluding electrical connections, it's literally 2 bolts.

TwinsTec101: sonds like you need power steerring fluid

TLOU386: I've been through 4 starters and a new flywheel,and it seems to still grind,I don't kno what the problem is

floridavenue: did you remove the exhaust manifold or anything to fit them out and then in there?

spelunkerd: People don't realize that 'shady tree mechanic' has a whole new meaning when you're talking about January in Alberta (grin). Good for you to post this on such a day, you're a better man than me, Ben. Dave

ghtowagon: While is the PS probably the PS pump. Call up Lee power steering they rebuilt the pump on my Impala. I have a video on how I replaced it.

slowride55: it sounds cool? lol i can imagine..... "Dude whats that epic sound???" "That, that is my starter!" lol jk nice video

zentaifetish: You're the man if there is ever a need for a starter replacement when HELL freezes over!!!! Damn,8 below! Good job, great video.

Maheekun: what year corvette starter motor and which parts store did yo get it from, or better still, do you have the part number for that new starter?
