    No, Its located in one of the bolt holes in the mounting flange of the starter motor and protrudes out about 5 mm to locate in a bolt hole in the bell housing, from memory its in the middle mounting hole on a 505 STi starter.

    Kooti Needs Help-starter.jpg
    Hi Every one, thanks for getting back to me.

    Hi Neil, we only had the head off to fix oil leak so engine is back together and with a socket on harmonic balancer bolt will turn by hand.

    Beano, I have attached a photo of the same type of starter which is in my vehicle "photo attached is of starter on a 505 same model as mine that is being wrecked" as you can see the housing on my photo is different to the photo you have attached,. mine has three bolts attaching it, your photo shows only two. Is an Auto starter different to a manual? haven't looked at Headlight as yet will check them tomorrow.

    TassieExec. Thanks, as i said above, only head was removed and since being replaced engine is turning by hand.

    Jaahn. Thanks, I am still in the belief it is a bad earth causing voltage drop, however, unless its an earth from engine to chassis not connected somewhere i have not found as yet, all others have been checked. which brings me back to starter motor which has been checked by two Auto Electricians??

    Very frustrating!!!
    please keep any thoughts and ideas coming, great to have the support.

    I will keep everyone informed of any progress.

    Cheers Kooti

    Hi Kooti

    Three bolts are normal on a 505 STi starter, manual and auto are the same.

    Coming into the thread late.

    I'm wondering if the "voltage drop" is caused by starter jamming because of improper mesh ?

    This will cause the starter to draw excessive current and give similar symptoms to excessive voltage drop.

    Kooti, Sorry if I confused you....the starter I pictured was some other car....I just wanted to arrow the linkage to clarify which linkage it was that you were talking about.

    Hi Everyone.
    You may have noticed I have been off the air for a while "then again you may not?"
    The starter motor issue was sorted. there is a unit near the stater motor with several wires connected to it, this was not re-connected to the body by the mechanic after the head was replaced, this not being connected was the cause of starter problem as it was found to be an earth for all wires attached, starter issue was because this connection was not earthed!!
    So here I am once again again I am looking for your expertise and knowledge for some information.
    Is anyone able to tell me the difference between a ZE and a ZD engine?
    From my understanding by Dr Google the ZD engine was in the 505 from 85 onward.
    My 505 is an 84, is anyone able to help me with how to tell which engine i have in my 505?
    I think my engine is a ZE but not sure, anyone know how i can check.
    The 505 Haynes manual i have lists two different engine timing settings, one for the ZE engine and one for the ZD engine.
    Does anyone have any diagrams for setting the timing on these engines.
    I won't go into why my car is not yet back on the road and the issues with mechanic doing the job as i would be here all night.
    Appreciate any help.
    Thanks Kooti

    It should be a ZDJ. The ZEJ was not an Australian option.

    Thanks cjl.
    I appreciate you getting back to me. As of today the mechanic doing the work for me has gone missing, I went there this morning and his workshop is closed. Needless to say how i am feeling at the moment. My only hope at feeling any better today is if South Sydney Rabbittoh's win the football tonight.
    Thanks again Kooti

    Hi Kooti
    Sorry to hear of your ongoing saga, hope it all comes together soon, your car is definitely a ZDJ, as cji said the ZE was not available in Australia and is a 2 Lt motor not the 2.2 Lt motor fitted to the ZDJ, the diagrams in your Haynes manual should give you all the info you need. by the way the ZDJ motors were fitted at least as early as 84.
    Regards
    Neil
