Do not allow starter to hang by the starter wiring. Monitor the clearances around the rear of the engine and at the radiator as the engine is tilted downward at the rear. Again, complete removal of the starter is normally unnecessary. I will never use it again. If no leaks, it is time to test drive the vehicle.
