i am pretty sure thats how i have done them. I also remember using a small stubby wrench and a longer wrench and interlocking them from the fender well.

When I did my starter, you have to drop the down pipe off anyways to get the clearance to drop it out the bottom. Do that, take the starter off and then you can rotate it out towards the side of the wheel well to get to the solenoid. I had to replace mine because of the solenoid, the plastic fell apart and I snapped off one of the terminals.

I have the same solenoid problem. I was having a intermittent starting problem. You would turn the key and nothing. My initial thought was the clutch position sensor (I have a rare ZF-6 speed manual transmission). Went on a 1600 mile trip this weekend and the intermittent problem went away...it is now a full time problem.

One of the terminals on the solenoid was off of the solenoid. The starter had not been touched since I had the truck. Oh well...180k miles and this is the first engine related issue. Not to bad I guess.

Myself as well

Mine started out as intermittant, except that mine would not always engage the ring gear and make a horrible squeal as it ground against it. I had about 100K miles in it at that point.

I personally use a 0 offset gear wrench from under the truck for both. May have to double the wrench to break it loose. Same to tighten it.
