There is a red wire from the alternator output to the starter battery connection post That wire has a fusible link in it that may blown if someone hooked up a battery backwards. I think the fuse link is located on the starter end.

How do remove and replace the ignition switch of a 1983 Oldsmobile Regency?

Oldsmobile Didn't produce a V6 Cruiser in 1983 only a V8 350 or 307..there isn't a firing order to an engine that wasn't built...

Every 1980 through 1984 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight had a 5 liter (307 cu. in. Oldsmobile) V-8 with Rochester QuadraJet (4 barrel) carb.

disconnect the battery, jack the car's front end up or put on a lift. locate the starter and remove the two bolts. then remove the two wires ,reconnect wires to starter,then lift starter and rebolt,reconnect battery and your on your way not a hard job a front end lift or auto lift sure does help

Knowing the firing order of an engine is an important part of owning a car. The firing order of a 1983 Oldsmobile Regency V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

For starters electronic ignition was added to the GL1100, as well as a larger1085cc engine during the 1980 to 1983 model years

what wires do i need to hook up to the alternator

Depends on the engine. I believe they are different body styles so it's unlikely that the sheet metal would swap.

on the front of the carb it is a small in line filter right where it hooks up

Many auto parts stores such as Autozone and Advance Auto Parts have the equipment to test starters and will test them for you at no charge.

If Mechanical (Carb) look at the front lower area of engine -- follow fuel lines

More than likely a metric TH200. Maybe a TH350 if you're lucky.

A diesel engine ignites through compression, not through spark...

If the engine is stock it is either a 3.8 V6, 5.0 V8, or a 5.7 V8 diesel

try the coil pack. make sure there are no bare wires rubbing. try the coil pack. make sure there are no bare wires rubbing.

No such animal, unless you're referring to the diesel 350. Oldsmobile 350 gas engine production ended in 1980. Sorry, but I know nothing of the diesel 350; perhaps someone else will come along and provide an answer for that motor.

The Haynes manual or Chilton manuals will both have those diagrams. They are available at most auto parts stores.

right at the starter wires hook up to starter part of them are the fusible links
