  1. I'm installing the Bassani Headers and have one comment-

    I'd like to take an aluminum baseball bat to the sadistic Ford Engineer who placed this "Concealed" Starter Bolt where it's located..

    :chair: :chair:
    :bang: :fuss: :bang:
  2. It's not that bad! 1/4 inch drive ratchet, 6" extension, snap-on mid-well 10mm socket. Done!

    I've also heard of some guys using like 36" of extension and going over the k-member and popping it right in.

    You can guarantee that starter motor is put on the engine / tranny before it is dropped into the car!
  3. yeah that third bolt is a real pain in my ass. Broke it last time lol.
  4. 2' of extension and a swivel on the socket end of that, I went right past the header but it was the stock header.
  5. no doubt its a major PITA but i was able to put it back on with the long tubes in stalled, just get the longest extension money can buy and a swivel socket and some patience and it will come off
