    undone the steering arm and moved it as far over as i can after disconnecting the power steering lines, but the problem im having is removing the top bolt on the bell housing from the heat shroud that covers the starter, this is ridic, anyone got
    any suggestions or advice as im really trying to restrain the use of the hammer right now!! cheers guys...

    Sorry, I have no suggestions but can only agree with you 100 %. I recently started to remove mine just to service it but gave up because it seemed like a major headache. Hopefully I won't need to replace it for a while.

    I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
