removing a starter drive 64 T-bird

How do you do it? I got the starter out but unsure how to get the drive off.

On most of those older starters you take out the 2 through bolts and the nose will be able to be removed. There is usually a smap ring that you will need to remove in order to slide the drive off the shaft. If it is a single wire starter, if I remember correctly you need to remove a roll pin that holds the actuator arm so you can slide the drive off.

The easiest way, put starter in the vise snug, take off the back cover band( just loosen up screw not all the way off) cover band will slide off. remove top cover, remove the pin from the yoke arm (at the top) this will relieve tension when you take out the 2 thru bolts ( these are the bolts that are at the rear of the str) when u take them out hold complete str still together because if it springs on u you have got a little more work then anticipated. now tap the front nose cone (housing) until it comes off, by still not letting it (str) spring apart on u. then lift up the yoke arm (fork) out of the way then there is asnap ring cover slide off then knock off the snap ring (half shaped moon) don't loose it, then slide old bendix drive off. just reverse and u should be good to go! If u unspring everything let me know and I will explain easiest way for u, good luck, Dana
