What size is the bottom bolt that holds the starter onto the frame? Tried an 8mm, 9mm, 10mm. 2 seemed to small and one too big. Any ideas?

Unless someone rounded the edges or replaced it with something else it's an 8mm. I use a1/4" Dr. 8mm flex socket on a wobble extension.

Got old starter out and new starter in but not tightened. Can't seem to line up the bottom bolt. Any suggestions? Also the oil that leaked out when I removed the starter. Is that engin oil or something else? Ran on the flor so I need to get some to replace it.

yep that was engine oil . when you get it buttoned up and on the center stand , check the oil level . i have run across a couple of the older wings that had a 10mm bottom bolt on the starter .

yours should be 8mm bolts. just reread and noticed its an 83 .
