Its not to bad, IIRC, the bottom bolt is a prick to get at, socket and extension is needed, been a while since i did mine.

i recon the easiest way is to drop the back of the tranny so the motor tilts a bit giving you a little more room to get to the starter motor. or find someone with realy skinny hands and a lot of patients.

2 bolt located in a pain in the a*** spot, took me less time when i tilted the engine a bit rater then hit and miss in a tight spot. this way it was easy for me.
