Re: Help On Replacing Starter Motor

I haven't got a 147 myself but as they are the same engine as 155 ts I would presume that the starter is in the same place. As you look at the engine it will be located on the back of the block by the gear box. You will prob have to remove battery and holder. AMF sensor, pipework from the airfilter to the throttle body and some smaller wires on the loom which may be in the way. Starter should be held by three/foue bolts which will be 13mm. A good socket set and a decent screw driver plus a soft mallet to encourage the starter out of its hole (they get a bit stuck) should see you laughing. Hope that gives you some idea. Sorry I can't be more precise. Just incase no one else answers.
