Hey guys, I’m trying to put new gaskets and rocker boxes on my 73 XLH but I can’t get at the last bolt on the rear cylinder as pictured. I can’t understand why they’d put it in the worst possible place where I can’t get a socket or a straight bite with my wrench.

any advice on how the hell I could get this off would be awesome

There's a special wrench for that, you'll need that wrench to properly torque the heads down too. I don't have a p/n for ya offhand but it looks like a half moon 12 point box wrench with a 3/8ths drive end. I've had luck using the short straight crows foot style box end wrenches with the 3/8ths drive end too.
