I do believe you've uncovered a topic that's NEVER been touched on in this forum! There's certainly no Stickie I recall ever coming across for this. I understand you're on your 3rd Impala SS now so good luck with maint. or repairs you're planning.


To answer your ques: forward of the bellhousing below cyl. 8 sparkplug.
KW Baraka and 4DoorSS like this.

\'96SS SOB: SSRI, Herter Tune, Tri-Y II, , 3000 Edge, F/HO bars, METCO extendeds with CV MMC, Bilsteins, currently Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta (315/35 rear). Finally, wait for it... LT-4 knock module!
\'96FWB BUW-Butt Ugly White: PCMPerformance tune, HDFA w/ swissed filter, 1/2 SLP s.s. catback with H- and Flow Super 50s, oem opti rebuilt 3 times, SS Bars, METCO LCA, Airlift 1000, Monroe SS, PowerTrax No-Slip, CTS wheels with +1 rubber. Finally, yes again... LT-4 knock module!

And if you're going to replace it, use the Corvette starter. I just did this using one from a 96 vette.
It's cheaper new, duralst gold is 116 bucks, its smaller, uses less current and spins faster.
Start up sound is different because of the above, some like it but I liked the quiter stock starter sound. The vette starter really gives off a pronounced gear engagement sound like it means business. Car literally starts with a flick of the ignition.

Good one. I would have probably thought of it too but I couldn't find my starter either this morning. Taking the body off the frame did me in for a bit.

OP. did you find what you needed?

Yes. I'm having off of body experiences more and more frequently myself. Nearly every morning now it seems.



FTR and BTW, there's been not a word about -why- the requested location of said starter. My initial reply is genuine interest to see where this is heading. I'm hoping for something along the lines of perhaps a starter relocation kit required for NASCAR boom tubes.
