To remove it there is 1 bolt located at the top right corner of the starter. It is best to look at a new starter to see where it is located. Unscrew it. Then there is one more bolt coming in the opposite direction on the lower left side. So the 2 blts are coming in opposite directions. The best way to remove the one coming in the opposite direction is to take out the air filter and squeeze your hand back there and feel for the bolt. You can see it (your hands) So eye it and feel for it.

Now there is another way but not really recommended. Dismantle the starter piece by piece. The part that should stay stuck is the part that sticks to the side of the engine. Now make sure the top right corner bolt is out. Spray WD-40 on it. Let it sit. Now take any tool that get a firm grip (I used a monkey wrench) on it and pull it out by lifting it up then down. Repeat to loosen it more. Eventually the bolt on the lower left will break the hole it is in and the starter will come out. The bolt might be slightly bent. Be careful too much force will break the bolt. Make sure all parts are out, even the part that goes into the motor. The only thing left should be the part that sticks to the side. BE CAREFUL.

The thermostat on a 1982 Honda Accord is located on the left side of engine (passenger side). You can find it near the left side of the manifold.
