Just finished my starter replacement.

You only need a ratcheting 10mm wrench. Remove the electronic/brake plastic housing protector. Remove the two heater core hoses. No need to drain radiator because it's higher than the radiator.

Be sure to line up the starter guide pin a the top center between the two bolt locations. It should slide in without much effort. The bolts should also tighten easily until the end.
