My pleasure to share Bill- hopefully others will come along and read this later and get the help they need. I picked up a set of metric closed end, offset head wrenches from Sears- this gave me the leverage and grip I needed. I also was able to use a swivel head ratchet (I may be butchering the name) for some of the odd angles. I've also heard of folks using ratcheting box wrenches- but they are pretty expensive. I would keep hitting them with the mapp gas. Sears also has devices for removing damaged or stripped bolts if it gets to that- not sure if those would help. I've read more than once where people have had good luck with nut splitters. I was fortunate where it wasn't necessary. Hopefully someone who has used a nut splitter can provide a picture as it sounds like you were wondering how one would fit- and the one I have is too big for that job.
