So I'm finally getting around to replacing this starter (life has gotten in the way until now) and I can't get the starter out. I've gotten all the bolts off and the starter pulls away from the engine a little (1/2"-3/4"), but it won't come out. I've twisted and turned and pulled on it to no avail.

Is there a trick to removing this thing?

Also, because I'm a fool and like to fiddle with things, I turned the bendix on the new one and it's now locked in the engaged position. Is that going to cause me issues with getting it in place?
