Ford 7.3L Powerstroke Starter Replacement Procedure

Video Transcript


all right today we’re going to show you
how to change a starter on a 7.3 liter
diesel pretty much all the years are
basically the same you can follow same
pattern now these are very very easy to
change out even compared to a lot of the
gas engines out there so just follow
along there’s a few tips here and there
and stuff like that few precautions
besides that they literally unbolt and
come right off and they’re heavy even
compared to the gas ones so if you be
ready for them once they do come off of
there
make sure you can your face is out of
the way and stuff like that we’ll go
through it step by step though now one
of the first things you want to do is
disconnect both negative battery cables
on your batteries there’s one here on
the driver’s side and there’s one over
there on the passenger side what I do is
something like this I’ll wrap the
terminal itself and a rag to isolate it
and then I’ll also isolate the terminal
itself and if I can I’ll get the
terminal away from the area also that
way there’s never any chance of
transferring current to that that big
lead down there by the starter would be
taken off down there so that’s about it
up top here make sure the vehicle is in
park you don’t need to jack it up or
anything these vehicles are tall enough
make sure it’s in Park Park and break on
stuff like the health precautions like
that you can even chock the wheels if
you wanted to and get underneath there
and watch some tools down there and
we’ll get it changed out pretty easy ok
down here on the passenger side the
vehicle on the bell housing right here
is the starter you can see it’s quite
large and it’s it’s powerful enough to
turn over the big 73 engine on here so
like I said it’s pretty heavy city ready
for it
now there’s three bolts that hold it in
place there’s one right here one right
here and then it’s one way up here but
still not that hard to get to these are
13 millimeter bolts on here besides that
the first thing you want to do after you
disconnect those batteries isolated more
safe is disconnect a large power lead
that comes down here and then there’s a
little s terminal up here it’s a little
wire right here just a nut on that one
also so let’s get this one out of the
way and you can go up to the other one
here so I’ll try to stand you up here
okay the nuts that hold these leads out
here usually pretty rusted on there so
go ahead
scram real quick with some rust
penetrant and it should be a fourteen or
fifteen on there the nuts on these are
pretty big compared to the gassers okay
I think this one’s a 15 millimeter and
now you have the little s terminal this
one feels like it’s a 8 millimeter round
here usually they’re ten mil so I wonder
if this is something’s been changed this
one’s definitely eight male dog now this
one it was cranking there was a it was
thumping the solenoid here was thumping
on it and that thought would do so here
our terminals are fine on here need to
clean up a little bit that’s about it
okay not the wires are off this I
however you want to do that now what I
do is something like this I take the
wires I put next to the cooler lines
here and then I they they’re pressed
against the pan so just in case of any
accident on connection up top I wrap
them all so now a flex head ratchet like
this with a 13 millimeter deep will be
your best friend on these like I said
these usually aren’t in here to tights
we definitely get this top one out first
I haven’t pre loose and we’ll just get
it out of here it’s got to contort your
body to get them on down they’re not
that long
see your point oil level mo we’ll get
this right here next I guess it’s really
loosened get it out of there it’s behind
the lines here we’ll get that out of the
way keep our boats
our bolts nearby and this is the last
one you’ll see it’s starting to come
down like that that’s when you want to
hold it like this one hand use your
thumb press against this and keep on
wrenching this way it should not fall
let’s place about these big and heavy as
they are the area surrounding them is
it’s very open so these things come
right out of here all right now what’s
what’s out of here clean the whole
flange area of all the oil and dirt
corrosion whatever you got on yours
that way when we bolt the new one up it
bolts up nice and flush and we’ll have
no problems with grinding or weird
issues like that nice and clean and
think of any kind of starter or any kind
of flywheel teeth issues on here now’s
the time to inspect them you can see
them all inside of there and you can
spin the crankshaft by hand up front a
little at a time and inspect each one of
your teeth to full circumference of the
flywheel
all right now it’s always a good idea to
clean your terminals this one’s right
here in particular is transferring a lot
of juice you don’t want no resistance in
the circuit so let’s check the old
general overall condition out and get a
little tug like this and besides that
we’ll just it’s hard to show on camera
here but it’s or not take a wire brush
we’re going to clean the terminals on
here and we’ll get the corrosion off
okay
so nice and shiny again okay feels sees
that and once they’re cleaned up we’ll
spray some brake cleaner onto a rag
Oh take them
will clean the corrosion off them okay
nice and clean and then we’re going to
put just a little bit of dielectric
grease on there and what that will do is
it’ll protect the terminals on there
from corrosion from salt spray just
anything that might be in your area
environmental type stuff that will I
stick my hand through here there we go
you see everything new so root a little
bit like that
you’re coating the actual mating surface
same thing on here and you’ll have a lot
less problems this way once you get the
terminal on there we’ll put a little bit
more on there but you don’t want to put
too much where it’s contacting on there
too like that you’re just like glaze on
there and make sure you clean all your
bolts on here on the back side here
where the threads are especially heads
don’t matter so much but feeling really
clean you can clean them all but
especially the threads on here and
before the new starter goes on make sure
you have a bolt on hand so you can put
it up in there and start it while you’re
holding the starter up and do another
quick wipe on here now of course you
have a major oil leaks on here you’re
going to want to fix them so they don’t
soak the new starter but the designs not
as bad as the Taurus vehicles where the
stars get totally soaked ok now go back
in you’re going to want to do let’s get
it up in there make sure you have the
correct holes lined up on here like so
and the starter solenoids way up here
you’re gonna hold the starter one hand I
get Bolton with the other
quite a few threads so you’re safe then
you have a second bolt get it into there
I should be able to thread these in
pretty easy like this and then we’ll
snug them up just enough so it holds a
start up like this same thing over here
but don’t tighten down all the way just
yet well I get that top bolt lined up
once a little harder to get to
now once the top bolt is threaded in by
hand you can feel it I would say it’s
fine
all our holes are lined up you can
proceed to tighten these and it will
fully line it up
so that the top one should simply go in
by hand just a little hard to get to
taken all these
okay now onto the terminals you’re going
to do a small one first and then the big
one small I’m so far up there so get
that one on and then that on and
everything and if possible I reuse the
factory nuts and these should be all
spin all a on there by hand big one on
here
titin a small one just be very careful
with it doesn’t take much tighten that
one I will tighten this big one up here
again don’t tighten it too much this is
a tough stud on here but it’s always
easier to break these studs off or make
this solenoid start spending out here so
be very careful at the big one too at
this point all three bolts are tied on
here our two connections are tight
everything’s back together and aligned
but you can go back up top and put the
better connections back on and test your
out all right so let’s try it out
success
