      bolt holes dont line up. like mounting bracket is different.

      When the bolts are removed, the engine sags. One of the bolts actually runs through the motor mount. Have you tried lifting the engine? Block of wood under the oil pan and then slowly lift while checking the alignment of the holes. Only other solution I can think of is use the motor mount from the vehicle the starter came from.

      its called a 12 point triple square (8mm) your local autozone should sell a pack of 3 for like $8 bucks (3 different sizes in the pack) 8mm being the one you need [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      stick it in a socket 13mm or a 1/2 socket on a ratchet and crank away

      sorry another question. Can I use the shifter box assembly and the rod that goes from shifter to linkage from a mk2 to fit my mk3 and mk3 manual transmission and linkage? or will that need to be mk3 specific

      having had both boxes "next" to each other...the MK3 box mounts differently and I believe the relay haft has a slightly different bend to it. BUT everything else is interchangeable, the rods, bushings etc. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      You can plug the outlet with the relevant stopper and o-ring (cheap dealer item). The correct outlet flange is pretty cheap - maybe $12.

      Sorry, I should correct myself.... The tab (triangular piece) isn't fastened to the firewall. It literally just sits in there and stays fastened from the pressure of the spring.
      I used a piece of gum to hold it in place while I put the spring in.
      Your donor should definitely have it, the tab might have just fallen off when you took the spring assembly out.

      this piece.

      beat me to it.
      Here's the P/N and diagram if you need to go buy it.
