      After over boosting my Saleen Racecraft, I finally threw a rod or two. So, we're putting her back together. The new ford racing crate motor is installed, and I purchased TREMEC MAGNUM XL S197 6-speed kit from JPC. Nice kit: the dual disc clutch, bellhousing, and transmission have all gone in pretty well. But the driveshaft is giving me a hard time. It slides onto the tailshaft fine, and I loaded the six hex head bolts in the flange that bolts to the rear end and got them started by hand. The issue is I don't have enough room to get even a standard allen key into the bolt to tighten it. And these go to 75-80 ft lbs. Has anybody run into this? Or should I just go get some 12-point bolts with shoulders and call it a day?

      Thanks for your help
