Best Answer

If it is similar to the 1990 aerostar than I can help. There is a drive axle that blocks the removal of the starter. It is held in by 4 bolts. If you remove these and carefully but forefully push it over there is barely enough room to remove the starter. However, I personally could not reach up behind the starter with a wrench to remove battery cable to the starter. In the end I cut the cable and when installing the new starter I put the new cable on first the fed the battery cable up through the engine compartment. Warning, do not cut the small wire if you choose this option. It should come off fine. There is only about an 8th of an inch of clearnace to pull the starter out even with the drive axle push to the side. However, it is possible. Also I fed the cable under some other wires and tubes in order to keep it from touching the exhust.

Hey Russ== Take it to the parts store like Autozone and they will check the starter, alternator and battery. goodluckJoe If your starter isn't working check for a single wire that is connected with a spade on the starter. ford had a problem with the spade corroding and not allowing the starter to work ( i think it might be the trigger wire). just wire brush the two connections and put them back together, or put a new connector on the wire.
