Thanks for all the replies

Managed to rotate the engine, bloody bolts still causing issues, would I be able to cut the heads off and access that way? Not putting those actual bolts back on again anyway!

im not sure if you cut the heads off theres enough room to slide the coupling half off the remaining bolts . you could fit marshall ones as they are allen bolts and no lock tabs but a little locktite on the threads . some people had problems with them working loose so make sure they are tight when putting it back together .
