    so I have my 97 all torn down to do the motor but the starter and top 2 bellhousing bolts are being a PITA. any tricks to the starter? I almost had a stroke getting to this point but it will all be worth it I am sure.

    feed a long extension through. It is tough but it will go. Then you can get it from just behind the radiator.

    yep. and when your re-installing the bolts i always wrap the bolt with tape to make it to where it doesnt fall out of the socket.. much easier
