Having pulled a starter last fall, I can tell you with absolute certainty: the
starter is trivial to drop.
Disconnect the battery, then take all the wiring off the solenoid terminal(s),
then remove the two bolts that attach it to the engine using a ratchet and
some long extensions. You should be able to pull it past the dizzy and up out
through the engine bay.
