jd 310d backhoe starter removal

Richard Sahuc Was able to remove lower bolt on starter. The upper bolt (appears to be a nut on a stud in the engine)can not be accessed with a short socket,open or closed end wrench. Tried to remove solenoid to gain access but, to no avail solenoid is loose but will not come off. Is there a special tool needed to access this top nut/bolt?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Leonard I have used a 3/8 drive ratchet and a suitable extension and a 12 point 9/16 deep well socket to remove the nut behind the starter solenoid. You have to work this in behind the starter and engine block. It is a blind operation so be patient. You may have to remove some wiring or fuel lines or even the oil dip stick tube but it can be done with this. Deere does have a special wrench to get this nut removed but I had better success with the socket and extension. The solenoid has a tab on the bottom that has to be turned to allow the solenoid to be removed. Hope this helps, and good luck.
