dissy wont come

Who the hell designed the hold down bolt for the chev 350. I've been fighting with it for well over an hour, trying different wrenches, sockets, swivels etc and for the life of me I cant undue this simple bolt. Everything is in the way from wires, egr, brackets, the actual distributor itself... and apparently the easy was is a crows foot wrench; which sadly... I dont own.

I picked up some of those wrenches you speak of and there was still too much crap in the way. Also grabbed a 9/16 crows foot and ratchet and it worked perfect.
