good question on the bolt torque, as to the one bolt not wanting to go in. Assuming you know the hole is clean, no broken bolt in there. I would run a tap in just to clean the threads up could just be crap in there or the first few threads a trashed and the tap would clean that up also.

Let's see.....my impact gun with my three foot extension and wobble socket goes.....ZRRRRRRRRR--BRAAAAP, and I usually give it an extra BRAAP-BRAP.

You can lower the tail of the tranny to make it easier to get to that last bolt. Make sure the threads are clean like PEPI suggested using a tap for the hole and a wire brush, thread file or tap on the bolt. Your dipstick tang is straight and not keeping the bolt from going in straight isn't it?

The bolt came out, it will go back in........just need fingers with an extra knuckle sometimes....or tape the bolt to a wrench.

Or...once the engine is bolted in....you could drop the tranny mount to make more room to get that bolt in.

Why can't you not get to it? I use a 24 in extension and a wiggle socket.
