Hi Folks - is it a PITA Job to exchange a Starter Motor on a 62 Ford Galaxie? I have the Inertia Style Starter with Bendix Drive - shown in the Thread before...

Easy Job to do? For what have I to look at?

Should be pretty easy if you have the 223 or 292 engine. If the steering center link is in the way, you can temporarily disconnect the idler arm to give more room.
If you own the 406 with long tube exhaust manifolds a starter change is a REAL pita...

I have the Fe 390 Engine - On my Starter Motor is the Bendix Drive Gear - but it´s open and not closed.....

I know when it´s closed I can spin it ONE time by hand to Open position. But this cannot reversed by Hand again....

So I say my Starter Motor is now in OPEN Position - Can I install this to the Flywheel? Or only in CLOSED Position? Makes a Difference?
