There aint no hole in the floor, you have to raise the car, put on your coveralls, get out your inch/pound torque wrench and 5/8 box end

Thanks, The Doctor I must have been thinking about a previous 1960 Ford Galaxie that I Think was accessed through the floor. I take it its on the right hand side ( passenger side) of the gearbox is that right?
