The nut is on the bottom bolt for the starter. The next bolt above it along the engine/bellhousing interface is the top bolt for the starter. It is threaded into the starter nosecone body, which has threads. So the bottom is a through-bolt with the nut, the top is screwed into the starter. Not a lot of room, but a little patience gets the top bolt out. I usually leave the bottom nut on the end of the bolt while I screw out the top bolt.

Thanks in advance for the words of wisdom that will flow.
