The location of the starter is underneath the intake manifold. You can just barily see it. In order to remove it, you must first remove two of the bolts, which are on the opposite side, on the transimision. It does help to remove the intake tubing come from the air filter to get to the bolts easier. The third and final bolt in on the starter side. I would very stronly recommend getting an air powered rachet, as there is NO room to really move a wrench (intake mainfold in the way. You will be doing most of this by feel, so it does help to have already purchase the starter and have it sitting there so you can see how the bolts are laid out. Have fun! Bryan Soemo
