Any tips/tricks I should know before attempting?
No, it isn't hard. Some tips:
You may need a small puller to pull the old Bendix assembly off.
Don't lose the little woodruff key on the starter shaft, it can pop out and drop into the starter hole if you aren't careful.
Be sure to install the woodruff key and hold it in place when you slide the new Bendix in place or it can pop out.
Be sure to use new lock washers and the correct head height bolts with the new Bendix. Too tall bolts can rub on the inside of the Bendix cover.
Be careful not to lose any of the Bendix cover screws, they are an oddball size.
Partially install the Bendix cover screw that faces the center of the car, then install the Bendix cover and slide it under the head of the partially installed screw. That inside screw is extremely hard to install after the fact.
If your Bendix cover has holes for the screws instead of slots, slot one of the holes so that you can slide the Bendix cover slot under the head of the inside screw (as mentioned above).
Bottom line - don't be in a rush, and be careful!
Great set of tips and tricks, thank you very much!
