    All you have to do, is try different sockets on them

    I hope you have a good selection of metric tools,
    for any vehicle made after 1980

How can the top starter bolt be accessed through the wheel housing?

There should be an access area that is covered by a removable cover. Remove the fasteners by either pulling a part in the center first if it has that style, If it is a smooth flat head about the size of a nickel, just pry it off. These sometimes break but can be found at your local auto parts store.

There are two different size flywheels (starter ring gears) on these engines. It sounds like you have the flywheel with the higher number of teeth. Find a good auto parts store to get the right starter for your truck.

Starter Bolt Size

you can buy them at autozone,they may even know what size you need. usually starter bolts are the same size and in some cases just the length is different. simply try the one you have in the other hole and if it works then problem solved on the size but the length may still be different.

1997 - v6 Toyota Camry just got a new battery and now the starter just clicks when you go to start car. Everything lights up and chimes inside car but just can't turn it over. How do I replace the...

You can purchase a starter from Auto Zone or Advance auto. I do not have pics sorry. But if you have metric tools, unhook your positive battery cable first from the battery to prevent arcing.The starter is located on the transmission next to the engine.You will need a rachet, a swivel adapter,a 3 inch extension and a 6 inch extension. I am not sure of the socket size on the bolts holding the starter to the engine.There should be between 2 to 4 bolts holding the starter to the engine depending on the model.Dont take the starter solenoid off the starter,just unbolt the starter from the engine.Once it is off you can unhook your wires but make sure you note what wires go where.You should have one heavy wire that bolts to the side of the solenoid and then a plug also.You will need your old starter with you when you buy the replacement for the core charge.The hardest part is simply getting to the bolts holding the starter on,but the extensions will help with that.Good luck.

well you picked one of the easy ones all you have is a couple of mounting bolts (depending on what engine you have) and one battery cable . just pull the bolts out and remove the starter. some times you need a pry bar to break it loose but make sue you have the bolts removed first.
good luck
