Hi, I am trying to get my engine back together because snow is coming tomorow and I ran into a problem. I need to torque the cylinder base nuts but I can't get my torque wrench in there. The problem is that when I put the socket on the nut it fits, but then I go to connect the torque wrench to it and the wrench hits the cylinder so I am unable to connect them. I tried using a universal joint, but I still can't get the tool in there. I can get in there with a basic wrench but I can't torque the nuts with it. I was woundering if there is any other kind of tool I can use or any techniques I can use to be able to get in there to torque the nuts.
Thanks,
Alex

Do none of them fit or or just certain sides? Because if you get atleast one torqued down use a normal open end wrench and keep going turning each nut till its as tight.

No I couldn't even get into one side with my torque wrench, but I went out to napa auto parts and got a set of crow foot wrenches. That's the way to do it. Oh yah and the four inches of snow we were supposed to get today turned out to be 1/2" of slush [:(!].
