You need a decent set of wobbles or swivels for your sockets. It'* doable.

A ratcheting wrench MIGHT make it in there.

Mwuhahahahahaha! That is one thing I DO NOT miss about my 94. That was the biggest pain in the butt to do. But ya, Jason is right...good swivels.

A short socket, a 180* u-joint, a 12" extension and a 3/8" rachet. It'* easy.

The L27 is worse by far than any other engine in the Bonnevilles. The L67 is a snap in comparison.

A wobble is the best way. And get some mechanics gloves.

No need to remove the heat shield or anything like that. Dame'* recommendation is how I used to do it on my 93. I could have the TB off in a matter of 15 minutes.

I agree...practice... I can pull a cluster and pull the pcb'* in about 25 minutes. All a matter of what have you done on the car too many times

Hey I just unbolted the upper intake and slid the whole assembly out backwards.... but then I was trying to get the upper intake off anyways so that just made it simpler. Dammed wobblers cost as much as a new intake gasket!
