Default Starter Removal from Upper intake

I do this every time I work on my supra. I right down step by step everything I did then log it into my computer for safe keeping. This time however I figured Id share it with you guys.

for the life of me I couldn't get the top bolt off my starter from underneath. Weird angles improper tools. Maybe I couldn't just wrap my head around the procedure. I was tired of messing with it tho so I just removed the upper intake plenum and got at it that way. The following is a list from start to finish on the steps I took and things I removed.. Not worded very elegantly, but its good enough for my notes.. I originally use a good size dry erase board then bring it in the house for my repair data...
Hope I can help someone with this.

Great stuff. You can also use a swivel, about 2 ft in extensions and get to that top bolt. You have to go over the transmission drivers side from underneath. You can get right to it. I gave up the first time I tried changing mine. Second time this way I had it changed in about 30 min..

I had to do my clutch And I also used 2-3ft of extensions and a swivel to do the top bolt. But after removing the transmission I decided to rebuild the motor. So all that fighting with the start and transmission was a waste of time for me haha.

Lol yall serious here, it only took me 10 mins top, all u need to do is loose the bolts then shake the starter so the bolt can be removed easier with your own fingers. I aint remove anything to gt at it, jus get small ratchet then you good to go.
