Don't forget to stretch first, I had to turn my hand in some pretty funny angles to get the bolt closest to the block started.

"anybody got any tips on a 1989 PS?"

Disconnect the battery cables.

Clean the mating surface of the block, where the starter mounts. That and hte bolts are how the starter gets it's electrical ground. If they're dirty and corroded, you end up wasting money on the starter due to premature failure.
