Clutch Housing Bolt Removal

In searching the files archive, I came across a post where it was suggested
that, if you only needed to pull your engine, and not the transmissions, that
you should separate the clutch housing from the transaxle housing.

I don't think I'm going to follow this suggestion, since I need to pull the
transmissions anyway. But how in the world do you get at the two bottom bolts on
the clutch housing? I can't even see them, let alone try to get a socket onto
the heads.

Hi Ed,
Yes, getting at those bottom two bolts is rather tough and you do
pretty much have to work by feel. I have pulled the engine in one of
my Amphs 6 times in a two week period, while checking out various
clutch and throw out bearing combinations, and removed those two nuts
with a simple open end wrench. If I recall, it was a 17mm wrench.

I simply slide the front seat forward and dive in. When doing this, I
often wish I were about 30 years younger.
