Question Starter Removal - 2000 F-250 Super Duty V10

I'm new to the board and hope someone can help me out. Are there 3 bolts or 2 holding starter in? I'm guessing there is one hidden on top. if any tips to get it out and more importantly to get it back in?

Thanks

Yes there are three of them. Use an extention (about 6") to get forward of the starter. It's not straight across from the bottom one. If you run your finger along the housing flange from the second lobe up you'll feel the edge of the third lobe.
Goes back in the same way with an extension. There is a flange or something on the block that keeps you from feeling it. I just pulled mine when I did my transmission.

To avoid rounding the bolt head of that top bolt (especially!), use a 3/8" 6-pt IMPACT Socket. Use anything else and round it off, I told you so.

Less than 10 bucks at Harbor Freight for a set.

I don't know about it needing to be an Impact socket. I have Snap-On 6pt sockets and haven't stripped the head on one that wasn't already damaged beyond removal.

I guess that if you are using Harbor Freight sockets the impact ones would be better.

Of course that doesn't count on driveline bolts. Who the hell came up with a 12pt bolt head? dam engineers.

You know when I first responded to this post i had a feeling of dejavu

I used a 24" extension with a flex socket (6 point) and it worked like a charm.

Also take the inner fender out and the wheel off obviously, 10X easier when you can sit there and look right at it. Top will still be behind the exhaust manifold but you aren't trying to reach up and over the starter from your back.
