removing starter on '89 S2

I've got my car on stands, trying to get the starter out so I can bleed the clutch, and, according to clark's garage, I should be expecting to remove the starter held on by two 19mm bolts.

Instead, I find one standard 19mm bolt on one side, and on the other side I find a socket headed bolt that looks like it needs a big allen key to fit it. Except I don't have an allen key big enough to fit it. Here's the pic:



OK, so what have I got here? Is this standard on an '89 S2? What size Allen key will fit this bolt?

Thanks for any advice,

-Mark

Not standard as far as I know, I've got an 89 NA and mine definitely has traditional bolts that hold the starter in place.

That's kindof odd... If you can get a set of large allen wrenches, then find out what size you're dealing with, you can get an allen key socket to fit that... I think that'd be the best way. Otherwise, I'm not sure you could get enough leverage with just an allen wrench and you're less likely to strip it with a good socket. The socket will probably cost about $22 from snap-on

It's not odd. I have the same set up. The allen size is the biggest in a set of metric allen wrenches maybe a 10 or 12mm.
