Plug and play my friend. Disconnect battery. Remove all the wiring (positive(red), negative(black) wires and another very large wire located on the back. with all wires removed ( remember to take note as to where they all came from!!) Remove the bolts attaching the starter to the car and holding the starter securely in your hand, wiggle er out from the flywheel and the mounting brackets on the engine.

Take the new starter and observe as to where exactly all the wires would go by remembering where they all were on the old one.

When putting the new one on, i like to attach all the wires first then put it in EXACTLY the way the old came out, screw in bolts and make sure it is tight. aluminum gaskets are appropriate and will come in the box with the new starter.

The Chevy starter does not have a ground wire, the starter grounds through the starter casing.
