Hi Jan,


If you can see the spring on the end, you've obviously freed the motor from the front of the bellhousing. The spring you refer to sounds like the torque spring on the end of the starter bendix. This will need to be removed as a complete unit with the starter motor. It sounds like you may have to remove something, possibly even an engine mounting to slide the unit out. If you have to remove a mounting, jam a piece of wood between the bearer and the block/sump (Paul Killick may not agree with this!) to prevent strain on the remaining mountings.

Steve.
