        That does look like it will need to come off but there will be others as well.

        Sidenote: based on the corrosion(blue green powder) seen at the crimp on the large power wire to the left of your circle, you *could* have a simple an issue as poor wiring connections. There is a good chance that wire is no longer functional due to the corrosion/high resistance.

        In order to see if you can just turn the motor over you can put a large wrench(crescent if you must) on the alternator and try to spin it that way-the alternator is down and to the right of the water pump pulley you showed in a previous picture. You may need to pinch the belt around the alternator pulley to add friction if the pulley just spins on the belt.

          Ok maybe I should clean / replace that too... first im still thinking I should try turning the motor... I mean maybe just stuck from sitting.. but I can't turn it by hand. My dad is going to bring a pipe wrench over tomorrow and we'll try that.

            The bolt you have (circled in red) is the front support for the starter and as Mike said it will have to come of as well as the bracket. The starter bolts are under the starter at the back where it bolts to the bell housing and will be hard to reach. You will need the replace the red battery cable that shows the blue corrosion.

                    So I got the starter off.. and have tried turning the flywheel with a screwdriver (not much leverage at all) but had no success... Looks like its seized? Stuck? Not sure how I could find a way to get a grip on the thing to turn it. But it certainly isn't spinning easily. Not sure what to do next.

                      Ok so here is where i'm at now... I put a chain wrench on the crank here and it will turn but with a lot of effort. Does this mean it is seized? Isnt seized? Should I keep turning this and putting a little Marvel Mystery Oil in it every once in a while?

                        Keep oiling and turning. Try turning backwards also. Sounds like it is loosening up.

                          He is turning it backwards! But socal is right about more oil and turning both clockwise and counter clockwise. Be careful with the chain wrench that you don't damage the lower pulley where the belt rides. Soon you will be able to install a starter and turn it over with it.

                            Nice... does this type of thing actually work (turning / oiling)? If I just keep going will I get it loose? Its getting SLIGHTLY easier but still needs that leverage to turn it.

                                Yes! Keep oiling and turning. My 8.2 was froze a few years ago. Poured mystery oil in the manifolds and spark plug holes, let sit a month, voila, running well to this date.
