My cutlass did have a second hole, so once I rocked the engine forward I would slip that bolt through. Not easy with one person, but do-able.



As for missing the Bonnevilles, I miss both I used to have.

The 96+ roller fulcrum rocker won't work, or so I've read. Would have been a little bit nicer though.

Yep. But without a good way to yank the engine forward it'* near impossible to get the bolt through. Since I don't have a come-along, I used the hooking method. It gives me a good grip on the engine which makes it easier to rock it and hooking around the front bolt is easy.
