this is most easily done by lowering the front H frame. if no overhead hoist is available, jack vehicle up so the front wheels are about 4 inches off the ground and put jack stands in place in proper locations not on H frame. use jack on rear of H frame for safety and to lower slowly. loosen 2 front H frame bolts a couple of full turns. Loosen rear bolts slowly switching from side to side till desired arm room is reached. too far and H frame will fall until front bolts grab. support frame w/jack stands. remove nuts/bolts off of wires on rear of starter,noting where they go for reassembly. unbolt starter from trans housing. reverse to reinstall.
