Thanks, I assume that bolt  on the back side of the motor needs a 12mm box wrench?

Yup and there are a couple 10mm under the oil pan and windage tray.

 

One at on the side of the large coolant tube/chamber right behind the waterpump.

Wait a sec... I guess the socket needs to be 12 mm 3/4"? My 1/2 is too fat.

use a 3/8 socket and ext with the adapter to 1/2 unless you have a 3/8 size breaker bar.

You can see on my picture attachment the hump part of the socket is why it wont fit to reach the bolts because it's too fat to fit

I know the issue.

I just use a 3/8 socket with a breaker bar or an adapter to the 3/8 from 1/2. Whichever was handier at the moment. Generally the 1/2 adapter so I can use my impact wrench to wind the bolts out.
