They're all there. I found them just by looking around. How many of the red bolts have you taken out?

Hi Guys!

More confusion, Included is a schematic indicating the existence of 6 bolts. Two centre ones I have removed, the other four is a mystery.
Thanks

Alex

Are you talking about the bolts that I highlighted in red? Because I saw all 6 of them at the exact location...

Hi Guys!

Found the other four bolts, they were recessed and hidden by dirt. Got the bolts off and removed the manifold. Eureka, I can see the Starter motor.
I'll keep you posted.
Thanks again

Hi!

So, disconnect the wiring from the starter and remove the harness by undoing one nut?
Remove the water bypass in order to access the the other two nuts for the removal of the starter? The two nuts they are big.
I'm glad that your engine is so clean, do you drive the car at all?

Hi GSTEG!

Did you use any of the LOCTITE gel in order to make sure nothing was going to come off?
Any nuts or bolts that are more vulnerable to vibrations?
You have been very helpful!
Thanks

All you need to do is torque the bolts back to spec and you should be fine. There should be no need for loctite.

Hi GSteg!

Torquing would be very difficult with some of the nuts and bolts, how do you do it?

What do you mean? Grab a torque wrench and some sockets.

The two nuts holding the starter, I don't have any wrenches that doubles back on itself.
