Mercruiser starter

I have a 1987 mercruiser 4.3 in a 19ft starcrart. The engine turns by hand but the starter wont engage and turn the engine. I need some directions on two things.

1) how do I pull the starter. Cant find directions on the internet ???

2) How do I jump the starter to test it. the starter has one large hot lead and to small wires. One seems to be the signal wire from the ignition.

Jump right to the starter. By pass the solenoid. The ignition switch when you turn it on should close that solenoid there on the starter.

http://www.defender.com should have a Manual for it .
