Guys am I stupid for failing to find the starter motor on a T180?

Found the starter motor as Charlie's plained, but to get to the lower bolt attaching it is trying to find something you can't even see..

Has anyone ever attempted to replace a starter motor? When I took he battery out for easier access, I just realised how many cabling hasn't been clipped back into place... ( looks like someone who installed the new starter motor on my old T180 didn't bother at all)

The scary thing is,... If I reach for the underside of the starter motor,.. I can feel a hole! I just hope that it is not a hole that's supposed to have a big bolt in it?

Well, at the moment I'm running out of time, but if I can manage to do the starter replacement, I can take pictures and do a thread on it,..
