Default Q for Honda techs

Sorry to repost this, but I didn't get a response from my first post
.....O.K., seems like I only pop in here when I have a problem and need
advice,
but ........
O.k., I did a valve job on a 1987 Prelude 1.8 carbureted engine, and am just
about done, except I need to tighten up the intake manifold. My question is
this ..... how the heck do you get access to the lower middle stud/nut???
Can it be accessed by going between the carbs around any vacuum/fuel lines
etc.??? I have the air cleaner assembly off already, including the backing
plate. Please respond to this group AND by email if you've done one of these
intakes before. The Haynes manual I have simply says "remove nuts & bolts"
...... DUUUHHH
Any tips would be appreciated. TIA .... Timm .........

in the immortal words of the haynes manual, "assembly is reverse of
removal".

This question has come up a few times in the past. Instead of repeating the
post, I've included a couple of links to my prior answers to this question.
I hope that these prior posts will be helpful. Tegger, maybe this
information could be put in your FAQ if it's not there already.
