Disconnect the battery lead & other wires from the starter motor ,undo the bolts on the starter flange that hold it onto the engine, & if there is nothing in the way the starter should pull straight out,if anything is in the way it will have to be removed first.......hope this helps......cheers

I need to change out the starter on a 1979 Ford F350 but I do not know where the starter is or how to change it out. Thanks, Francie Green
