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......
