    oh for crap sake 66e legends please tell there's an easy way

    lucky im drunk cos im pissed at my self lol
    was on the home stretch of finishing off the wb800 last thing was to swap the pv cables over well looks like i've put the bloody pull upside down (some one please confirm) the holes for the cable on the round black disc are meant to be down not up?
    is there any tricks to getting the pv cover off with the manifold still on cos i really don't want to pull the manifold back off i'll cry.
    i know im fudged as you can see by the pic the top bolt wont come out enough to swing the cover out of the way just wanted to confirm im rooted before i go pulling the manifold.

    had a 66e for years and this is the only thing i hated about it.......Unfortunately it has to come off. No other way. Also if you didnt know the other hole on the disk is so you can put a thin screwdriver or awl and it aligns up with a whole on the cylinder then you tighten the cables up with it pinned and aligned.
