How to get 10 o'clock tranny bolt out?

I have a 95 Bronco w/ the 351 in it, and I'll be damned if I can figure out how to get the 10 o'clock tranny bolt out (looking at it from sitting inside the car). The top-left one. I have both the top bolts out, but the one to the left of those there is no clearance from above or below. What's the trick? Do I need to drop the tranny to get clearance from above? Sounds .... tedious in the extreme.

Grr.

Not sure how bad you've got it, but I remember having to loosen the engine mounts and jacking the transmission and engine to rock it forward on an old Dodge.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

The trick for me was to take everything off the top of the engine, crawl inside the engine bay, and guide the end of the socket onto the nut while my buddy turns the wrench under the vehicle. It's a 2-man job. that was the trick.
