I've replaced them on all breeds and sizes of starters over the years and they're pretty much self-explanatory once you get the starter off.

Not much to it. This diagram shows a gasser starter:



You can see this one (probably identical to yours) is installed the same way:



BTW
That one is for sale in the classified forum here.

I just replaced mine yesterday. most of it's pretty easy. There's just that third bolt on top of the starter that's a pain and makes you consider just walking. It took me less than 5 minutes to get everything else off and back on but that bolt took me 20 minutes to get out.

With the right length extension and a wobble socket the top bolt comes out quickly. Key thing is to remove it first while the other two are supporting the starter and when reinstalling, put it in last.

I've found that I need to use 1/4" drive when doing it as well...I hated life the first time I changed a starter...once you've done it a few times its a breeze.
