Look's like no one on the BB has ever had to deal with pulling a starter and although I haven't either, here's a bit of information from PO records and my manual: In 3/96 the starter ($280) on my '87 QV was r&r with a one (1) hour labor charge. The only reference to starter removal comes from the Engine Overhaul Manual and is the first step in pulling the engine w/o the xmission. "Remove 3 bolts, slide starter out the front, remove shim". Maybe the writer feels if you're competent enough to get the starter disconnected, "sliding it out" is the easy part. Hey, what's the worse thing that can happen?
