I have a 2130 and a 2550, same engines. I have had to change starters on both and it works just like you said, flip the wrench both ways to get one notch. Sometimes I have had to use 2 different wrenches switched back and forth to get it done. What is really fun is putting that bottom bolt back in! Last time I put it in place and started the threads holding the bolt with 2 screwdrivers and lots of patience. The mechanic at the local dealer told me he has a crowfoot like the ones described in the other posts. I have to change the starter on the 2550 again as soon as it warms up, and I just might make a crowfoot for myself.

You're right that getting the bottom bolt started back in can be a problem. I forgot to mention that I used a very long surgical clamp and a screwdriver to do that. I grabbed the bolt GENTLY over the threads just below the head, and held it in place while using the screwdriver on the head of the bolt to apply pressure. Then, by turning the bolt with the clamp, loosening the clamp to get another bite, and then turning it a little more, it was real easy to get the bolt started. I also used the same clamp to remove the bolt faster once the wrench got it loosened. The clamp I used was an old surplus De Bakey cardiovascular clamp, but those are pretty pricey. You can find similar clamps by Googling "long surgical clamp." I'm including a link to one source.
