RE: LINCOLN Specific Removal
I guess I'm alittle late here. I looked in my motor man. chilton man. and shop man. They all say tilt it a little (like that would work). I think you have to do the same as you did with the 352 also. Glad to hear it's fixed. Later.......................Bill

RE: LINCOLN Specific Removal
For completeness, I had to remove the starter motor of my 1959 with 430 ci engine and to get it out I did not lift the engine.
I did also not remove the exhaust header, however I did have to remove the exhaust pipes on both sides (the V-shaped piece).

All in all it took me only x( 2 hours......

Running into difficulty removing my starter as well. I have sprayed the bolts on the passenger side exhaust pipe. The thing that is scaring me is as hard as it is trying to get it out, itís going to be just as hard getting it back in.
Manual doesnít get to in-depth with it. Unless Iím not reading the right page (1,1, 11,2 & 11,3 17,2)
I see some people saying drop the exhaust and manifolds, steering linkage and jack up the engine. Crossmember in the way while I have also read just twist it. Has anybody else had a work around to remove and install the starter?
