Help! Is there a special tool needed to remove top bolt
on clutch slave cyl? (It's the one on the tranny) Had to
buy 12mm flare nut crowsfoot just to get the brake line off.

Working on back in gravel driveway, and do not have much
clearance. The Snap-On man comes to town tomorrow.
Any tips????

They have a tool that may go in there. I use it all of the time. It is a flex 13mm. I think the number is FLX13?

so how did u do it?

I'm in the same boat. Please let me know what you did. I am considering removing the tranny mount and lowering the transmission to allow more room to work an to get a better angle, but I would really prefer not to.
Did you end up using the flex tool???

I bought a 1/4 inch drive extention from snap-on
its 18 or twenty inches and used a 1/4 flex socket snap-on to reach it with a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter and a facom 72 tooth ratchet 3/8 inch ratchet.

I had to use 1/4 drive extentions and socket to clear obstructions.

Hope this helps,
