WHERE ARE THE BOLTS THAT HOLD THE STARTER FOR CHEVY S10 PICKUP 2.5L?

1987 Chevrolet S-10 • 175,000 miles

I've removed one long bolt and one short bolt that was holding a shim. The starter is loose, but I don't see any other bolts that are holding it on.

Also, will the starter from my 1995 S10 pickup 2.2L fit on my 1987 2.5L?

No to the other starter motor.

There are some covers that may have to come off to release the starter held on by some 19mm bolts.

Thank you! Note to others with this model & year: I couldn't get the starter out because there is a bracket that holds the front of it in place. This bracket is attached to the engine by one bolt. To locate this bolt, remove the passenger tire and look through the wheel-well toward the engine (it is virtually impossible to see this bolt by simply looking under the hood). The bolt is located slightly above the front of the starter. You will need a socket with a long extension to reach it through the wheel-well.
