1948 F1dude is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
the two small bolts on the front go all the way through. When you unloosen them and are ready to remove starter pull out and lift up & hold starter together as it will try and come apart. If one or both bolts do not come out check opposite side of starter as some times the threads get stripped. The threads are actually in the plate with the bell housing. & the fix is to cut a notch in bell housing and use a nut on the back side of your long bolt that goes all the way through
