mounting the starter

short and sweet.
bought sam without a tranny in it
several parts missing
uncle rebuilt a tranny, but he lives 4 hours away, so havent seen one yet
is there a place on the tranny to bolt in the starter or is there a plate that mounts behind the flywheel to bolt the starter to.
i saw a picture in my haynes repair manual (which sucks by the way) of what looks like a plate where the starter bolts
please help 87 sam 5 speed

Re: mounting the starter

The starter has two bolts one on the top and one on the bottom or the starter. One bolt (bottom) bolts right into the tranny bell housing, the top bolt goes through the bell houseing and uses a nut to tighten it. There is a plate that goes between the bell housing of the tranny and the motor, but it acts more like a big spacer

Re: mounting the starter

The plate is required. It keeps the starter from being pulled to far into the flywheel by the bolts. It is also what positions the starter's gear engagment with the flywheel. Unlike some engines made in japan it has no bolts hidden pehind the flywheel holding the plates position, but just uses the bell housing to engine bolts. The plate and a small bottom sheet metal piece is what keeps mud out of the clutch.
