I just reach in and drop a 1.25" socket on the cap and use a ratchet with a 10" extension. It's pretty much a straight shot down. This also allows me to use my torque wrench on the cap to get it just tight enough. Very easy now (after doing it a couple of times).

I bought the Snap-On socket - it's a 3/8" drive, so weaving the extension through the hoses and crap isn't as bad as using a 1/2" drive like I did with my 1 1/4" 1/2 " drive socket...

i also bought the sanp-on socket works a hell of a lot better than a normal 1/2 socket. i also have friend who makes the same socket on his lathe at home. but this was after the fact.

Did you get it from Snapon.com, I am looking on their site and can't find a socket that size. Do you have the part number of the socket?
