M35 Starter Removal
« on: May 11, 2019, 11:10:03 AM »

Gang,

I'm trying to remove my starter from the M35 and I'm having issues contorting into the position to get a wrench on the top bolt.  Has anyone taken their starter off on the Universal M35?  Any tips getting to that top bolt?

I canít speak to access per se on the 34 but I use a short extension on my socket handle. Just about the length to clear the end of the solenoid.
