Removing the starter on a 63 Impala
As GM built them, was the OEM starter removable without taking down the 2 1/2" exhaust pipe on 300 hp 327 63 Impala's that had that size exhaust manifold and pipe?
I am replacing the 2" exhaust pipes and manifolds with 2 1/2" ones and there appears to be no viable path to route the 2 1/2" exhaust pipe and NOT block the starter removal. To be totally honest, I'm not at all sure I could remove the starter with the 2" pipes. I have not tried. The only time I removed the starter on a 63 Impala v8, it was almost 50 years ago and the car had a 283 w/single exhaust.
If I must block the starter, I can add a take down joint in the exhaust pipe.
Thanks in advance.
