Does anybody know what the size of the starter bolts are, my bolts rattled loose the bottom one came out and the housing broke, the bottom bolt is gone and I need to find a new one ASAP, as well I'm in Canada any suggestions where I could find a new one ?
Mine is a two bolt setup. It also has a third hole for a three bolt setup as well.
My starter did not have room for a third bolt.
I do not know the metric size of the bolts, but I think maybe the socket size was a minimum of 10 mm - really just guessing from memory.
Maybe someone else will clarify for you.
Try searching through some of the existing starter threads. I also remember someone having to replace the adapter plate that allows the starter to be bolted to the engine.
After searching and searching I have come to the conclusion that we can use both 2 or 3 bolt, Mitsubishi seems to be the only one making three bolts. The bolt sizes are M10 x 1.5 x 35mm grade 8.8. I'm going to clean the holes with some break cleaner and then try some loctite red on them and see how it goes.
