I am having a hard time removing the top bolt on the starter. I have the bottom bolt out and I can just barely get a box end wrench on the top bolt's head but I have no leverage. I can't get an extension on the wrench for more leverage because the fender is in the way. Using a flex head ratchet I can get a bit more leverage and slip a snipe bar on that, but then by the time all the play is out of this setup I bump against the engine. I don't remember it being this hard the last time I pulled an engine. It's a 1980 NA if that matters. I have sprayed the threaded end with PB Blaster and Kroil.
Any suggestions?
