[V8] Power Steering Fluid - The all purpose driveway cleaner

(With a booming voice like Ed McMann)  You are CORRECT, sir.

So I have been trying to remove the banjo bolt for the last 2 hrs...

(OK, those of you that have done this before, stop laughing please)

I can't get that sonofaB off of there!  The only thing I have done
successfully is to tear the 'ears' off the bolt.  What's the trick?

To give myself maximum room to work, I have removed the coil,
accelerator cable, air duct, and the distributor (plus rotor).  Still
can't get enough bite/torque on that rear banjo bolt.  Ratchet doesn't
fit down there, so I have been using a crescent wrench.  At one point I
had myself convinced that it was a left-hand thread...  :-)

Once it's out, I will have it rebuilt...  It's the getting it out that's
the trick part.

Any advice?  Please?  Before I start throwing things... :-)

Thanks in advance,

- Jeremy

Your hose clamp won't do much good on that one.  It's the high pressure
hose from the pump to the rack.
