    IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO THIS INSTEAD OF GETTING A REMAN. THEN WITH STARTER REMOVED
    TAKE THE TWO SCREWS ON EACH SIDE OUT AS WELL AS THE ONE AT THE REAR OF THE SOLENOID.
    TURN IT CCW UNTIL IT WILL MOVE REARWARD AND UPWARD. REVERSE TO INSTALL NEW ONE.NOTE THE SPRING AND
    PUT IT BACK THE SAME WAY IF YOU ARE PUTTING A NEW SPRING ON AS WELL. BEST REPAIR IS A REMAN. STARTER!!
