Should be able to use a wrench or the special O2 sensor socket to remove it. A crowfoot's might help too.

Try soaking it with a good penetrating oil first, then let it sit for a while. P.B. Blaster seemed to work really well for me. - Gary

You might have to soak it:
As Gary_KQ6RT Said, have the proper tools, and there have been times that they have been so seized, I've had to use heat, Then Heli-Coil the manifolds.
I hope this helps?

Thanks Guys, It's now sorted. Soaked it in penetratrating oil, replaced the starter and ran it for 5 minutes. Dropped the starter and down pipe and managed to smack on a bigger spanner, ( I think someone may have rounded it off before) and it turned ok. I did have my brother helping underneath and the extra pair of hands made it so much easier.
Thanks again.

Actually...I use spanner interchangeably as well. <shrug> (Perhaps 'cause the first car I worked on was an XK120.

Spanner=wrench for the Brits :).
Look in any manaul for an English car (even if it's written for the US market) and many times you'll see those terms.
It's "proper" English. :) Joe--ASE Certified Parts Specialist & 10th Ann.Club Tech Director '80 Carousel Red Turbo T/A, 26k orig. '79 "Y89" 400/4 speed 10th Ann. T/A, 57k orig '84 Olds 88 Royale Bgm 2 dr, 307 "Rocket" (lol), 141k and still going.... '80 T/A project car...
