The easy way is to unbolt the motor mount from the frame member on the
passenger side and undo the top of the driver's side mount. That is,
where the mount studs attach at the front plate flange. This method
makes reinstalling it easier because you don't have to shimmy the
mount around the steering column and it is very easy to get the other
side mounting holes to line up.

The starter will come out through the bottom if you pull it out first
then wiggle it around to drop out while tipping it up. Put the bendix
end down through the opening.
