Starter removal

Alright guys need some help getting the starter out of my truck. My original plan was to drop it with the transmission. (changing clutch) However it looks like that is not possible because of a protective shield mounted between the starter and transmission that is held up by the flywheel. the reason I attempted this method was both bottom starter bolt heads broke off the shank. I'm sure the top bolt will brake off as well... just need to get more leverage on this thing anyone have an idea?

No help on a standard trans & statrer but go to eBay and you can a get shop manual for your truck. They have Real paper ones and not so legal ones that are scanned pdf's for like 10 bucks

Yeah those three bolts are a royal PITA. You get 1-2 clicks of a ratchet with the cramped room in there.

Even worse is the transfer-case to trans bolts on the back of the trans if you try to get at them with the trans in the truck, even with the tail end dropped down. . .

yeah I was going to pull the transfer case before dropping the tranny. One look at the passenger side of the transfer case quickly changed my mind!

Hah, yeah I wish I noticed that before I did it. I've got a nice scar on my hand from the exhaust clamp and heat shield tightening those darn things.

let me ask you this... what problems did you experience with your truck before it went?
