Welcome to the forums. I don't know if I understand what you mean or not. If you have the starter wire off and the two mounting bolts out, the starter should pull out. Try tapping it a little bit with a hammer and then wiggling it. There's an o-ring on the end of the starter where it goes into the engine and it might be stuck in there, but it should come out.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

thanks helmut. yeah i removed wire and the two bolts. tried grasping the whole starter and pulling but that didnt work. it looks like according to schematics that the back 1/3 actually comes off allowing to see some guts and brushes then the whole unit cam be pulled out which is what you are saying. in any event, i cant get any of the starter to come off. i tapped it and twisted it but ant get either piece off. i think the tapping helped though cause now she starts every push of start button but i know thats onlt temporary, gotta get those brushes cleaned or replaced
