I got the 3 starter bolts out but I tried for hours to get the leads disconnected but cannot get them off the starter. I have tried from the top and the bottom w/out success. Has anyone else doine this and is there a trick to it that I havent found yet.

all you have to do is push up on it twist and turn until it hits the sweet spot,then it will come out.is a PITA job.
