The way I did it (on both my '87 5KTQ and '91 200q20v) was to put a 3
foot pipe on my breaker bar. I did have to remove the rubber grip from
the breaker bar to fit the pipe over it. Anyway, the bar was a foot or
so above the engine and I could grasp it easily and puuuuuulllll! :-)


PS. don't think I'm an idiot, but I put that bolt back on the same way!
What!?!??  I used Loctite also!
