Starter Installation 2.5 4 cyl

This is a really serious question but it was something I wanted to know. Is there an easier way to install a starter on a Wrangler YJ with the AMC 2.5L?

Uhm...Easier than what? For me, 94 2.5L 5 speed, it was just disconnect battery, crawl under jeep, disconnect power cable, and then 3 inverse torque bolts, which came out relatively easily (Didn't spend 20 minutes working on each one), put the new starter in place, bolt up, power cable, hook up battery...didn't need to jack it up. Is there any specific part you were having trouble with? I do remember the top bolt was a little hard to get at, but it was possible without any weird tools..all I used was a ratchet or a breaker bar, no weird extensions.

Well, it it has a Bosch Starter on it, and I've had to pull it a few times doing service work on it and every time I've either taken the dang thing off or put it back on I've had to wrestle with it. I have to keep twisting and turning and manuvering it to get it to go back in. It keeps catching on the oil pan during installation, but i eventually get it to go in, but it's quite bothersome and I was wondering if there was an easier way..

Benning, I shouldve bought that Grand Cherokee off of you, I loved that car. And that 89 Firebird too. Remember that one day I spun out in the school parking lot. I don't think you saw that but I remember you were in the Firebird that day. Speaking of which what happend to it?

This is how alot of parts work on any vehicle. You just gotta remember which way it came out.

Yeah, that's pretty much just how it goes...it could be much worse. Trust me- ever try to put on a cat back with the rear track bar still there? It SUCKS. Without the track bar there it'd be a cinch....but with it there, oh good god.
