Fitting Guide

First of all, as with fitting all new or used car parts, Always remember safety! If you raise the vehicle on a jack Always support the car with axle stands! The one thing to be careful about when removing the wires to the starter. There is a red wire fitted from the battery to the rear of the solonoid, this wire is live & if it comes into contact with anything which is earthed, you will have problems. So be careful, a good rule of thumb is to tape up any wire ends with electricians tape or disconnect the battery completely but only if you have your radio code.

The two lower starter motor bolts are best accessed from the underside of the vehicle as these two lower bolts are located on the underneath of the starter motor. You will find the starter motor located in the centre of the engine at the rear under the air filter box and above the exhaust front pipe. The starter is connected to the car battery with red wire you must disconnect this wire by undoing the 13mm nut and washer from the rear of the starter solonoid, then you will find a 10mm nut and washer securing the wires on the smaller terminal. After removing the wires from the rear of the starter solonoid you will then need to loosen the two 13mm bolts that secure the starter motor to the gearbox. (A good tip is to always remove the lower bolts first to save the weight of the starter pulling downwards with gravity making the top bolt appear tight to the very last thread)

The lower bolt can be easily located and undone from the underside of the car where the top bolt is not quite as accessible, the top 13mm bolt is best accessed from under the bonnet at the rear of and below the vehicle battery it is easier to access this bolt with a 13mm socket.

A Fabric and Fit Guide for Baseball Pants

Worn for protection, baseball pants are padded and tough pants that have elastic waistbands. Their length reaches halfway down the lower legs and around the shins. The length also depends on the age of the player since youth leagues allow their players to wear above-the-knee shorts instead of pants. These pants are usually sold as part of a baseball uniform along with the jerseys.

Types of fabric

Baseball pants can be classified according to their fabric:

1. Polyester – They are very durable and ideal for adult games since they can endure rough contact. However, they lack ventilation so they are not very comfortable during hot weather.

2. Polycotton – This type is one of the most popular fabrics because it is made from the combination of polyester and cotton fibers that provide both durability and comfort for the players. Most pants worn in official and major league baseball games are made of this type of fabric.

Shopping tips for pants

o Baseball pants should be comfortable. Buy a pair that feels comfortable and light on your legs and lower body. Make sure it is breathable enough so air can circulate properly through the fabric to prevent your legs from excessive sweating. Furthermore, make sure that the padding is just right so it is not heavy and it will not appear bulky when you wear them.
