Anyone have any tips on getting that 15mm bolt on the back side of the head that holds the bracket for the AIR system manifold? I want to get the cover off and look for a stuck valve. Also, looking for an LS1 rebuilder in central NJ. I'm pretty sure mine has a spun bearing based on the amount of metal I found in the oil pan. Didn't see much in the filter.

Lots of stretching and a 15mm ratchet wrench usually works

Stubby wrench or ratchet works best for me.

You do know you only gotta get the bolt loose right? Instead of a bolt hole its a u shaped tab....loosen bolt a little an slide bracket out. If i can get it anybody can get it....lol
