Yeah, a lot like how I forgot to put the front oil galley plug in, behind
the disty, on my 345.. "Don't make that mistake again".. I haven't.. now
I'm putting lifters together wrong.. ;)

Actually, I LIKE my 74-75 bellhousing bolts.

Since I have "no" interior, I just pull the tranny tunnel cover off.  I
can then get to all 6 bellhousing bolts from the cab, with my impact
wrench.  Sometimes a wobble-socket is helpful for the lower corners, but
otherwise it's a snap.

Of course, I discovered this AFTER I fought to get the lower and mid bolts
out by hand while taking the 345 out..
