Preparing for pulling the engine-

1.  At what point do you disconnect the front motor mounts?  It appears 
that there is a bracket bolted to the frame, a rubber isolator with 1 
stud sticking out the bottom and 2 studs sticking out the top.  It would 
be easiest to pull the nuts off of the 2 studs on top, but it doesn't 
seem that the engine can come off of the studs because of the way they 
are angled.  I can unbolt the brackets from the frame but most cars are 
not designed this way.

2.  Can you remove the starter with the engine in the car and the 
distributor and oil filter adapter still in place?  It doesn't seem that 
there is enough room for the starter to come out.
