    This should help you out.

    I have done it in jack stands. The only problem i had were the cat nuts and bolts. Had to soak them in pb blaster and use freeze off to get them off. They were on so tight that i was starting to twist the heads with a beaker bar. I had cc mounts though so you may not have to take the cat off. I got all the bolts off the starter but there was no way it had enough room to come out with the cat in the way.

    oh just saw that darkman posted the pdf already lol.

    Looks doable.

    I'm concerned by these leads, clearly burned, not through the plastic but they were sitting very close to the side pipe. I'm guessing the new starter doesn't come with new leads, hoping these aren't my issue. Like I said not burned through but black as you can see. Definitely will inspect once the starter is out and heat wrap these things.

    Fixed.

    Loose nut on the main power cable. Couldn't turn it with my hand when I first reached up but I went to start taking the starter out and it turned very easily. Got three cranks on it to tighten it and the car has fired every time for 10 times now.
