Starter replacement

A few years back when I replaced my starter I found a great write up on here and now I've searched the past 2 days and can't find it. Anyone know of the thread?? I remember it detailed how to get the 3rd bolt out. Using extensions & u-joint, gave the length of extensions, etc.

Yes, it's the hardest one, but if you wait till last, all the weight of the starter will be on it, making it MUCH harder to turn. Do it first, then the middle, then the bottom. You can push the starter up while you unbolt the bottom.
