Problem Solved: I managed to get the starter off without removing the loader. Went to Advanced Auto to buy a cheap 12 point 9/16 wrench that I could bend slightly. But I went ahead and tried it first, and was able to turn the bolt a few degrees. Then I turned it over, and found that the 12 points were just slightly out of line, so I was able to get another bite and turn it a few more degrees. It took about 30 separate bites to get each full 360 degree rotation, but after an hour or so it finally came loose. Thanks for all the suggestions. I know one thing: When I get the tractor running, I plan to practice taking the loader off and on a few times, so I will understand better just how it works if this ever happens again.
