    as i understand this, you're trying to pull the starter off and you've got the main power wire and two mounting bolts out but it's still attached?

    have you tried whacking it with a rubber mallet?

    I do not know about this particular starter but there could be a third bolt between the starter and the block partially hidden from view or there could be a support bracket on the end of the stater supporting it to the engine block also maybe hidden. Just my experience with starters.

    Hopefully the battery has been dis-connected.
