Any guys here have a scout with a 304 and an auto trans? I cannot get the dang starter out!

The starter bolts are out but there is no way to get it out of the engine compartment. I am thinking I have to jack the engine up or remove the exhaust down pipe but then there may not be enough room.
I love working on the 4 bangers and 6's. This thing is driving me nuts.:no:

Unless you have some wierd exhaust - headers? - wiggle the starter out a bit and turn it clockwise then down. It does come out! Mind your fingers - its heavy.

Doc I have been trying for an hour. I find it hard to believe it will make it out. It's inches- plural- away from squeezing out.

It was a long day and I wasn't thinking. Jacked up the frame and the starter came right out. Ooops.
