Installing starter on a split port ford engine

Well, here I am again, to see other's experience on putting in a starter on a Ford split port engine. I just finished joining the donner engine back to the transmission. As you all know the split port engine drops valve seats occasionally and I got myself another one to replace the junk one.
I am dumfounded at the design of most of the stuff in this engine. Like right now I just snapped the head off one of the four bolts that holds the support bracket for the incredibly large intake manifold.
I can't believe I have to remove that bracket to wiggle the starter in, and I've got the whole engine and transmission hanging on a chain above the car. You'd think I'd be in a great position to drop in a starter. Nope.
Back to the incredibly large intake manifold on the split port engine. Do you realize how much junk could be removed from that engine by using a carburator instead of fuel injection? I've been looking at the side of that motor for a few days and can't get that thought out of my head. You'd be able to reach over and change the oil fitre (filter) from above for one thing.
