2 questions:

1: How is the dipstick tube supposed to come out of the block?

2: the exhaust port closest to the firewall on the passenger side, the upper header bolt....how the hell am I supposed to get it in there? lol

pull tube after you take the screw out.... pull hard and twist

Swivel socket and/or wrench is only way really. I advise loosing the passenger motor mount and jackin the motor up slightly to give you a lil more room. This is how i did it and it was not that bad!

Drop the motor a few inches down, this should make things easier for you.

if the bolt have been removed force a screwdriver under the flange on the dipstick tube and pry it out as you wiggle it. As for the bolt that should be the first bolt installed.

Il have to remember that when I put a new dipstick tube in it because I broke off the stocker tryin to get it out by wiggling it and pulling it lol the K member is out of it...the way I have it rigged up I have no way of twisting it around.....and as luck would have it its the last bolt to go in on that side...getting the retainer and the c-clip on it should be fun (stage 8 bolts) reps given :D
