Split the engine/gear box, out of the car, you can get a ‘round’ it. ;)
The way I removed engines is to split the Driveshaft at the inner CV joints, this way you don’t lose any gear box oil

That is a beauty that paintwork would shine with a good day and a mop and a 3 stage polish and seal .

You cover the cost of the postage, say £5. If you obtain two Brake cylinder repair seal kits....
