Just done a UK 1600,that was (new bolts used)25Nm + 90degrees + 90 + 90 + 45.So it's a five stage process in the correct sequence.An angle guage helps but you can make one out of card.If possible,ask a local dealer to confirm these figures as they vary depending on type.

Don't know about the Holden specifically, but in general, the starter will be held in place with two bolts. First, you'll want to disconnect the negative battery cable, then look at how the wiring is attached to the starter (which wire goes to which terminal). Then disconnect the wiring (should only be 2-3 wires). Then locate and remove the two bolts holding the starter in place. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Why does the belt fall off cub cadet model xlt 1045?

This is a known problem caused by a design flaw. It is caused by the tension pulley under the deck being too loose. The bolts may loosen themselves due to vibrations. You should be able to tighten the bolts on the pulley yourself, that should resolve the problem for you. If the belt falls off again, just re-tighten the bolts again. In 2007 there was also a recall for this exact product due to tension springs breaking. So the belt has not been the only problem with the product.
