97 s10 2.2 starter replacement

I'm currently in the process of replacing the starter on my 1997 2.2L s10. I have removed the starter but I am having problems getting the new one in. I have removed everything in the way, the back brace, support bracket, exhaust, and I still cannot manage to find the room to properly place the new starter back in. The old starter took at least an hour to find the right angle to push it back and pull it out, after a little bit of prying. I have tried jacking up the engine and that still didn't give me the room I need. I must be missing something...there is no way it can be this difficult to replace the starter on one of these things. what could I be missing?

with out seeing it telling you the angle to get in in there is hard but most of the problem is with the exhaust and the brace that runs from the motor to the bottom of the trans then try backing the starter into the motor side and then pushing it into the hole if that makes sense

Re: 97 s10 2.2 starter replacement

Alright I got it in. I took a grinder to the end that goes into the transmission and grinded a bit of it off..maybe 2-3mm. Probably not supposed to do that but that was the only way it was going in. I got it wedged up in there to where i couldn't push it any farther but it wont fall back down, then i took a sledge hammer and hit it and it popped right into place. And I hate chevy for designing such garbage. They should have gave way more room for a starter, or made the starter smaller.

Go to Rock Auto. Find your Delco starter. Click on the pn and it will list all the cars it's used on.
