You have to remove the two sensors on top of the transmission, take off the exhaust system from the engine. Remove the thin metal plate between the front of the transmission and the engine. You may have to push up on engine or pull down to get extra little bit of clearance. You can get a transmission cradle that will go on a floor jack to hold the transmission and it will rock front and back and side to side. In Northern Tool catalog. It will help when putting back together. Move back of trans to driver's side and front to passenger side, push up on engine. Make sure when putting back to put thin metal plate on after getting trans back in place.. you can contact me at email@example.com. I have 87 Samurai as well. I just replaced clutch. First time to replace a clutch. Appr. 6 hours work for experienced mechanic.

No. As both the water pump pump pulley and crankshaft pulley both partially cover the timing belt cover, they have to be removed to get the timing belt cover and the timing belt off. The only bolt you DON'T need to undo (unless you want to change the front crankshaft oil seal), is the centre bolt holding the crankshaft timing belt sprocket on. Only the surrounding 4 or 5 bolts need to be removed so the crankshaft pulley can be removed.

I would check car-part.com. It's a website that will show available parts for your car from auto recycler's in your area.

The starter was probably fine, but the solenoid's starter relay contacts may be welded together. Did the new starter include the solenoid? If you used the old one you may have kept the problem.
Another possibility is something is catching the starter gear fork where it pushes the gear to engage the teeth on the flywheel. Take a close look at the sheet metal cover in that area, and inspect the flywheel also.
