What is the best way to break these 2 top bolts?

I finally dropped my trans, but those two bolts are a real pain to break loose...

and that was not all the starter was a little work unbolting the top bolt on it too and looks hard to change if I ever had to it looks like you have to drop the exhaust...

I also found a leaky freeze plug on the drivers side right behind the dipstick tube next to the motor mount... thats gonna be fun changing..

next job before winter is my heater core .....


ughh I'm gonna sale my car before anything else go's on it....

If you remove the cowl/wiper assembly you have all kinds of room to put a breaker bar on them. It works for any kind of work that you have to do to the back of the motor too.

The starter isn't really that bad.If you can get a very small ratchet and socket on there to crack it loose than you can get a nut driver on there and run it right off.
