Andrei's hellish torments. sorry :)SquishMonth ago"Look how rusty this starter is" Starter: i been here longer than you been alive..🥱rick wendlingMonth agoI am amazed Andrew (and others) doesn’t hit every nut and/or bolt with WD40 and wait a couple minutes.Rush AustinMonth agoAnd I thought changing the oil filter on my old '90 Dakota was bad.thomas ackermanMonth agothe old buicks needed a u shaped wrench to access the upper bolt on their starters. just take an older wrench and heat it up and bend it. sorry to say you maybe just needed to clean the bendix in the solenoid. its a copper disk that may be corroded where strikes the contacts. or... the bushing in the nose of the starter could be ovaled out and need replacing.but nothing wrong with new if you can afford it . also you may have skipped commentary on it but briefly wire brush it then clean the clamp and cable with some kinda cola would be my first step. get a used plastic bottle cut it in half pour in coke. add the separated dissembled clamp and cable and let soak 15 min. discard coke. repeat. rinse with clean water. make sure to discard the cola so no one drinks it. and make sure not to toss your hardware with it. this cleans to a shiny copper or plated finish. allow to dry. reassemble . now coat with a spray on battery terminal protector. it will last a LONG time.The real american cowboyMonth agoRatcheting wrenches amazingBinod BhusalMonth agoVery difficult to remove starter motor 😌Fook Utube2 months agoWhat was the yellow stuff you put on the battery cable,then later the pink stuff?Lil Asian Grocery LLC2 months agoYou just have to pull the motor to remove the starter 😂Scott Schaeffer2 months agoSee, they don’t want anybody working on their own dozer.

You know service manuals are often free online for older equipment. I bet you there is a nice little section in there about starter removal, rebuild and replacement procedure. I can say with certainty there will be nothing mentioned about torches and skid steers to forcefully rip the f-ing thing out.
