Newb Here with starter and questions

My wife received a 71 280 SEL as a gift and I am trying to get it running after 15 years. I have no manuals at all and was wondering if thre are any downloadable manuals for my 108 chassis with 2.8 6cyl. I am trying to replace the starter now, because the solenoid would click but not start (w new batt.). I am trying to replace the top starter bolt. I saw advice on the forum. But my question is do the solenoid wires drop with the starter or do they have to be removed first to get them off. They are corroded and broken. I see no way to get at them while the starter is in the car.
