Anyone who has read my posts knows how crappy my last few weeks have been,
vehicle-wise. Well here's another.
The starter on my '90 GTA (305/700R4, TPI) crapped out. The original one has
two terminals. Three wires under the larger terminal (one low gauge and two
higher gauge), , and a single high gauge wire on the smaller terminal. The
new starter has three terminals, one large and two small. Should I just
ignore the extra terminal? A ground maybe? I yanked the old starter last
night but was just too damned tired to wrestle the new one into place. It
didn't wanna go on and got heavier with each attempt. I also had to swap a
bolt between starters, as the new one didn't have the small threaded section
on the endbell for the starter-to-block brace. Other than that and the
terminals they look interchangeable.
