    wrap a piece of small wire filament around it. 10 mm gear wrench works great.

    get some fishing line, and a ratchet open end wrench.. and its not that hard..just takes a few times... i had the oil pump tightned and back on in bout 45min..kept droping the bolt..but fishing line saved my ass bunch of times... just take ur time, and if u start to stress out, walk away... i was able to fit siting up right from the floor facing the motor..so i guess u can try that to.
