Icon8 2002 ford ranger 3.0 starter stuck

I have a 2002 ford ranger with a 3.0L engine and manual transmission
I have been having problems starting the car as of late and my friend who
is a mechanic said that all it is is the starter

so i purchased the starter today, got under the car and removed
all of the nuts and bolts that i need to, to replace the starter

problem is, the old starter is stuck and will not come off at all.....


so now i am sitting here, having to go to work, and no running truck
until i fix this problem and unfortunately, my time is running short to
get the work i've done to my client

any tips?

for some reason it wouldn't come off and i had to take a rubber mallet to it once or twice

it then came off no problem and now i sit back and enjoy a beer
