Follow the previous members advice of pounding a 8- or 12- point socket firmly over the head of the bolt, I often do this and then use an impact wrench to break it loose. I feel sorry for you, its pretty hard to pound a socket onto that starter bolt, but it can be done. If you cant seem to get it done the first time, dont feel stupid, just cuss more the next time and it should work better. remember, the right tool wont get the job done any faster than lots of four letter words.
