My older brother has a 99 400 foreman with a dead starter.

He is a total non-computer user and has asked me for help with looking for either a manual for the 400 or a diagram of the starter and associated bits.

He has attempted to remove the starter by removing the two bolts that hold it on to the engine, how ever the starter will not budge and he is unwilling to "get rammy" with it. (his words not mine)

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Just use a screw driver and pry gently on it and it will pop loose. If you take your time taking the starter apart and paying attention to where the washers go you will have no problems. Mark the side with a marker to ease putting it back together (they have marks already but it will make it easier for the first timer). Here's what they look like torn apart.

2007 420FM (475cc, 27x12x12 Mudbugs) ---------- 1995 300FW (webcamshaft, 350 rear end)
2008 420FE (26x9x12 BearClaws) -------------------
1988 300 (old stock machine, nothing fancy)
2009 420FA (25x8/10x12 BearClaw HTR) ---------
1987 350D (work in progress)
