Hey all, I am having a really tough time getting at the two top bolts on the 351w connecting it to the tranny, if anyone has a suggestion about the simplest way to get at em, I would like to know. I am trying to pull the 351w, and these two bolts are all that stand in the way.

you can use the hatch but it takes time to uncover it unbolt the plate and then pullthe 2 stuborn bolts what I do is
1 get really long extentions and universal joit and get it from the bottom
2 get a socket wrench or box and (box end gear wrench is what I like ) and stand on the tire and go in from the top between the fire wall and the motor and if you don't have alot of room undo the tail shaft of the trans (from cross member )and push it up (put one of the lower trans bolts in so trans does not slide off) and put jack under t-case and lift motor trans will give you more room between the fire wall and the motor . Good luck

I second the extensions and the wobble.
I have an extension thats 24" or around there, with that and a wobble its a piece of cake.
