I have always done the " pull the motor", after alot of head scratching, its always been the easiest and usally turns out to be the quickest way. just unbolt the four bolts and pull forward and tip back and to the side and there it is.

Yep, there's no other way to access the starter than to pull the motor. This isn't all bad though because it gives you the opportunity to clean everything up. Things to remember: 1. Swing the hydraulic cooler out of the way. 2. Remove the drive belts. 3. Disconnect the clutch wire, stator wire, and main harness before lifting the motor. 4. When installing the starter make sure the backlash in the gears is properly adjusted. 5. When re-installing the motor, make sure you align the drive sheave assembly with the shaft sheave assembly. 6. Clean everything! This is probably your only opportunity for many years to clean the greasy dirt from the engine compartment, the cooling fins and the oil pan. The cleaner the engine the cooler it will run. These Onan engines run as hot as any a/c engine I've ever seen. Don't use a water wash engine degreaser like Gunk, unless you remove the starter first Twice I've ruined my starter by getting this stuff washed into the starter and messing up the brushes/armature.
