I recently bought a 1986 chevy c10. It doesn't currently run at the moment, and the guy I got it from said he thinks it may be the starter or flywheel. When I looked at the flywheel it doesn't seem to have missing teeth or ground down teeth anywhere. When I turn the key it just clicks. Looked at the starter and it seems like it wont disengage after you try to start it without tapping on it with a hammer. So I'm assuming it's the starter? Is there anything special or extremely hard about replacing the starter on a small block 350?

Usually not. Pretty straight forward. Disconnect positive cable  at battery.Then work on removing starter.. You'll usually need to check to see if the starter needs to be shimmed for proper clearance against the flywheel when engaged. Probably plenty of Youtube videos out there to help you.
