dnuccio's starter replacement tips and tricks
had to change the starter in my ZJ today, just thought I would post a couple tricks i found that make the job a little easier. this is for the V8s, i have the 5.2 but i would think these would still apply on a niner
1. unbolt the starter from the trans before you try to get at the electrical connections
2. once unbolted, carefully turn the starter upside down. this will give easy access to the electrical connections
3. its easiest to bring the starter out over the front axle, rather than try to fit it past the exhaust and upper control arm
starter mounting bolt and nut are 16mm, positive battery cable connection is a 13mm, and the smaller electrical connection is a 5/16.
hopefully this helps someone
