To got to the upper bellhousing bolts, try this if you have enough 3/8" extensions:

Before you mess around with the transmission jack, just put a floor jack under the tail of the tranny just in front of the crossmember. Take the weight off the crossmember and remove it. Now lower your floor jack so that you can see the upper bolts:



Like I said, you will need a lot of extensions. I have a 24" ext, and a few shorter ones:



It helps if you have a "wobbly" extension or two:



And you just poke it up there and remove the upper bolts:



After you get the upper bolts out, leave the four bottom bellhousing bolts in. Jack the trans back up and reinstall the crossmember temporarily with a few bolts. Now you can get rid of the floor jack and continue removing everything else. I try to get as much stuff as I can removed before I position the tranny jack because it is hard to work around.

Good luck.

Good advice ^^^, when putting the trans back you may need to jack the front of the engine to make it tilt back to reach bolt holes. Some loosen motor mounts and tilt engine back to make it easier to line the trans back up

Want even more room?
The front cradle has 6 bolts holding it in. The front two loosen a little bit. The middle two loosen about halfway. The rear two, take them completely out.

Have the Triple here. Great Clutch imho and their power ratings are very conservative. Should enjoy the Street manners. Why went with the S instead of the SC. ( well Builder suggested that lol) Best Wishes.
