Starter Removal

Does anyone have any tips for removing the starter ?? I printed pages from the service manual and they say to remove the three bolts from the engine mount and jack it up slightly. I have the bottom 2 bolts out but the top one won't come out very far because of the steel water line that is in front of the bolt head. It doesn't seem like there is enough space no matter how I twist the starter to get the snout of the starter out of the bell housing. Is there an easier way ? I DO NOT want to start removing other things unnecessarily either....

Well, after putzing around with it a bit more, I saw that the main electric lead was holding me up, so I positioned the starter back into the bell housing and took the nut off the and removed the main lead allowing the starter to swing out away from the engine block and was able to twist it down out of there........this car is one of the most ignorant cars to work on I have ever owned....but it has been reliable.

I did my motor swap this past summer, the starter was the single most PITA item. I feel your pain. I think I completely removed that motor mount to get enough clearance, from there, home free. Keep the LH faith.

Late!
