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.

How many types of starters are there for a 1983 305 Chevy engine?

Depends on what the 305 is in, a 305 camaro engine needs like a 9 tooth starter because the fly wheel is 12.75 inches in diameter with 50 some teeth. A 305 in a Chevy half ton will have like a ten tooth starter for the 14.25 inch diameter flywheel that has like 60 some teeth. All 305 engines before 1986 are the same they did have different flywheels for what ever Chevy put them in. 1986 and newer 305's had different cranks the flywheel bolts up different on a 1986 305 compared to a 1983 305.
