BTW, I think I forgot to post that Chris's suggestion to remove the bracket
wins the prize (which is that I'm _not_ gonna tell him how to vote)!  :-)

The whole  bracket was simple to remove from the firewall (3 easy 10mm
nuts), and now the Pentosin reservoir can be dealt with quite easily--i.e.,
slipped free and pushed out of the way.  In fact I can even reach in and
touch (barely) that damn banjo bolt. Presently I'm trying get a socket on
the end of my 1/2" extensions to reach the bolt from the passenger side
(i.e., behind the engine).  :-(
