Westerbeke 4-91 Starter Removal

It appears that one of the starter bolts goes through the engine mount. I removed the other 2 bolts and the starter wiggles a very little. The bolt that goes through the engine mount is loosened but it does not seem to let the starter wiggle more. Should I continue and take out the bolt? Will the engine twist?

This is on an 1976 Allied Princess.

Re: Westerbeke 4-91 Starter Removal

Just got the courage to remove the last bolt of the starter going through the engine mount. Had to lift the engine with a crow bar to take out the bolt. The engine mount slide out of the way of the starter. After applying some force the starter came away from the block. The starter is now being rebuilt. The next step is to reattach the starter.
