Bolts

Can someone advice how to remove the two bolts in the back of the engine block

I can't figure out how would these come off
Dies anyone know what type or size are these bolts?
It makes no sense to me as I don't see how any tool can go in there
And don't get me started in the starter same story
How if people replace this unit?
I have everything else out around the engine bay, alternator, radiator, fan, power steering pump and reservoir, fuel pump, manifold, intake, carbs and engine head
It is all ready to go except the bolts in the back of the engine bay
Thank you

If you are speaking of the two top bolts between the engine block and the bell housing then you use a socket, a universal swivel and extensions. You think they are a pain to take out? Wait until you try to put them back in!

You were advised by several people to pull the transmission and engine together. NOW you know why.

Thank you Mike
I guess they can be accessed from the bottom of the car not top.

Yes you are correct it does seem better taking the engine out with the tranny.

I have the bigger radiator out, do I need to take the smaller front radiator too?

Thank you

If you are speaking of the condensor you can pull the engine without removing it but I always pull it to prevent accidental damage. It's maybe 10 extra minutes to save a $100.00 part.

If the system is still charged then you can remove the auxiliary cooling fan, undo the 4 bolts holding the condensor to the body and swing it out of the way.
