Crawled under the DD to see why it was making funny noises when starting. Suspicion confirmed. One bolt was missing and the other one was 'a couple turns loose.' Can't slack off on the maintenance of a  over 25 year old vehicle.

Well that sucks. Found another bolt and after trying 5 minutes to get it started with no luck I got a sinking feeling. Removed the starter and sure enough, the bolt had broke off just below the block surface. Now I got to pull everything so I can get to it with a drill and EZ out. Trying to look at the bright side, I have to drop the tranny any way to replace a leaking slave cylinder. When it rains........


What were the noises like? Loud clunking?

No. More of a clattering with an occasional clunk.
