Undo the 2 bolts on the bottom of the starter. The starter will drop down, let it rest on the break lines, undo the two starters wires, (the selenoid and the power), 2 connections 3 wires total, grab the starter from the break lines, bring it out and around and it's all yours.

If it has a 1978 motor, then no...I tryed this similar thing and the holes don't match up exactly. The manufactorers make two diff. versions for your truck, ask your parts store to verify which starter to use.

check your wiring to the motor, if you have a hot lead on it, figure out why.

If it is a stock motor then yes it is. 600 CFM carburetor will be just fine on a stock engine.

The 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450 starter relay switch can be found on the firewall in the engine compartment. The starter relay switch will be on the drivers side of the firewall.

The manual calls for a 10w30 motor oil. Just any 10w30 motor oil will work depending on your preference of brand.

The starter relay is a smaller cylinder attached to the starter. There should be 2 red wires and a huge black one going to it. The "78 doesn't have a starter relay. It has a starter solenoid mounted on the starter.

first you will have to remove your heater hoses going to your motor to the firewall take them off at the firewall, then there is a big box on your firewall, there is a bunch of screws holding it on remove them you heater core will be inside it.
