1985 Ford Bronco 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles
I have a 1985 Bronco 2 that I got as a project car. We needed something to help haul and also I need to start learning more about how to fix cars. I got this and the starter is the major issue. The guy I bought the bronco from had a wood wedge jammed in next to the starter to make connection. The wedge fell out and when I turn the key, I can hear the starter turn, but it is not turning over the moter at all. I put the wedge back in and I heard a grinding sound and then it sounded like it was touching nothing again. I took the starter off thinking it was the problem, but the people at the autoparts store said I had the wrong bolts in it. I went on a hunt to find the "right bolts" 3/8 x 16 thread 37-45 mm long. But they were too short. The one bolt did not even fit into the opening under the bronco. So I ended up 5 hours later with basically the same bolts in it and the same problem. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
