NEED HELP: STARTER REMOVAL

All,

Long story short: while trying to put my turbo back in I dropped a Marmon clamp bolt down the y-pipe. I'm trying to get it off so I can get the bolt out and the turbo back in. I've gotten all but one bolt out (passenger lower side); the starter is in the way. I've gotten the starter loose but it will not come out. All wires are off but it feels like a strap or something is holding it from comming out. I've twisted it and tried to pry it out, but nothing works. Have I missed anything or is it just difficult?

BTW: the truck is sitting in my garage and I've been working on my back; no lifts or ramps, making everything twice as hard. I've taken off the fender and liner. I'm really beginning to appreciate why Power Stroke techs charge so much.

I changed mine yesterday & it came out real easy. How many bolts did you take out where the starter bolts to the block? Mine had 2 bolts but there are some that have 3. Other then that I don't know what to say. Once I took the bolts out mine pretty much fell out.

Three; as I said it's very loose and, as you said, should just fall out. Something is holding it from doing so. Not having a lift handy makes everything 10x more difficult. I have a local Ford tech coming out Monday morning to give me an estimate on putting the turbo back and, hopefully, give me some advice to fix this correctly next time.
