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 ..one every yr i have had it?..........now 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
Turbo231: @24preacherboy Yeah, it sucked but at the same time the brake master
cylinder of our other car failed...so 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
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
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 it...it'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
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
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
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?
