ok so hears the deal after putting a new turbo elbow on my 89 mkiii turbo, i go to start it and something is messed up in the wiring harness that cuts the engine out. so today i start by checking any wires for shorts and stuff. i put everything back together and go to start it and it doesint start so i turn the key to the off possition and take my foot off the clutch and the starter continues to turn. I had to finnaly remove the power by the battery. every time now that i the hook the negative back up the battey the starter continues to turn. i dunno what to do am pissed

STUCK SOLENOID CONTACTS.
Remove the starter, disassemble, and check for contacts that are melted together.

its a pain. Thats the only advice i can give you. Pretty much have to take the thing out by feel. Theres an upper and lower bolt and the bolted on electrical connection. Onc bolt is longer than the other so keep track.

Another thing to check while its out is the contacts at the back of the starter. If they are heavily worn replace them at the same time. You can buy the contacts from toyota or an altenator/starter rebuild shop

Hi Everyone

I have a starter issue thinking it would work with putting the relay but it appears that it's the starter. This might seem a stupid question but I can't find the top bolt. I see the bottom one easily but can't even feel the top bolt. Also once found what is the best way to take it out. I look in the Toyota work manual and it shows a picture of the two bolts but can't find it. Can you take out just the solenoid by the front long bolts ?

Thanks and have a great day.

Use a 14 mm stubby wrench to hold the upper hidden bolt on the starter side, and then use 2 feet of extensions to get to the bolt from the tranny side. Its a PIA, but doable. Its all done by feel, you cannot see anything.

Take the tranny to block support bracket off to get a little more room to maneuver.
