Customer Question

Can't get the third bolt off the starter in such an awful tight place. Any suggestions

Hello I will help,

This is the top bolt between the starter and the engine?

If so build a 14" extension out of 3 and 4 inchers with a deep socket on the end. Slip it in from the front over the top building it longer as you go.

Let me know if that works or if you have further questions

Thank you

Too long not that much room
Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.

You only need 3 inches at a time as you are building the extension in 3 inch chunks. Do you understand where the ratchet will go or is this not a 4.6L?

What is the year and model of your Lincoln along with engine size?
