I did a quick search and didn't find any. Probably cause it's real easy.

*disconnect batt cable.

*disconnect exhaust pipe from manifolds and back by the trans.

*lay pipe on floor out of your way.

*disconnect wires

*remove two bolts and starter comes out.

Just like all the old Chevy V8's except for the pipe.
It took me about 2 hrs so you can do it in 1.
