Simple locate, remove and replace. couple of bolts, a couple of wires. the new one will go in easily, however you may need to use some penetrating oil to loosen the bolts on the old one. You can't mess up anything else with this kind of repair, so don't be afraid to get dirty and have at it.

First remove the two 10mm bolts that hold down the cover for the starter. this is located under the carbs and above the engine. then remove the two long bolts that hold down the starter on the right hand side of the bike. I found the whole removal procedure easiest from the left side. with the battery disconnected press on the starter to slide to the pass. side. it is hard to get out!!! now weasel the starter lifting the rear side of the starter up and wigle back and forth until the starter comes out. disconnect the starter power wire and install the reverse order.

All you have to do is go under on the lower right side of your motor. Make sure you disconnect your battery first. Now you will see two bolts holding the starter in place and three wires attached to the solenoid on the top. After you remove the two bolts, you will be able to move your starter forward and out enough to undo those nuts holding the wires and your done

A 1981 Camaro starter should only have two wires. One cable directly from the battery and one purple wire directly from the ignition switch.

You will need to remove the fan shroud and the fan. Drain and remove the radiator. Using a puller you will have to remove the harmonic balancer. Next you will have to remove the water pump. Remove the bolts holding the timing cover and pry it away from the engine. In some cases you will have to remove 2 bolts on either side of the oil pan.

You will need to remove the fan and the water pump. You may have to remove the radiator to be able to have room to remove the balancer. Remove the bolt in the center of the crankshaft. Using a puller , pull off the balancer. Remove the bolts surrounding the timing. Pry the timing cover from the block. I do not know your reason for doing this but if you are wanting to remove the seal you DO NOT have to remove the timing cover.
