It's a pain to get to. I can't remember exactley what i used to get up there, but if you've got some extensions and swivles you should be able to get up there.

You have to feed your evtensions through the front of the motor and maybe be a swivel or two. It's not the easiest thing to get to but if you take your time you can reach it.

I have heard of many people leave that bolt out when replacing the starter.

Good luck
