Here is a tip a young fella gave me, I have used with much success.

Put a 17m socket (G10) on a breaker bar, put it on bolt with the bar end on ground towards front of car....turn the key for a 1/4 second.

Update.... remove coil wire...... :shock:

I have done this on my Red Sprint and it works great. Then I found out that if the bar slips, you can have fun replacing the right front fender as it will go thru the fender like warm butter.
