Northstar Water Pump Housing Replacment
Hey I'm having issues with the last bolt on my water pump housing. It is located in a very tight spot where I can't reach. Please help

Would it happen to be one of the two bolts on the lower left (looking from the rear of the engine) "leg" of the crossover? The section of engine compartment harness that lays across the transmission, is right in the way of the lower bolts. You can unbolt a couple of grounds to gain a little slack to move the harness around a bit.
Are you using a swivel head, ratcheting wrench? If not, GET ONE!!! It will make things SOOO much easier.
