[V8] monkey lads strike again

I removed the p/s pump from the 90 v8 yesterday to replace an o-ring on a
leaking X-cap. 
I found that the two bolts that hold the pump in on the front were
overtorqued and came out with some threads in them.  So of course there
wasn't enough thread left in either hole to get them to bite.
I have a helicoil set that's the right size but I need a right-angle
drill.  I am looking but so far have some doubt about the size of them
versus how much space I have to work with.  
The alternative seems to be to remove the a/c compressor to get the
bracket out of the car to work on it at the bench.
Anybody out there with any BTDT?
