Can I get the numbers off your engine. Here is a link for what I am looking for.

No there is not a special tool to remove it. I normally use a 1/4" drive socket on an extension to fit into the small area.
A regular open end wrench may work also. Some of these have a torx (star) insert in them that makes life a lot easier.
Thank you Sir, I have one last suggestion. If all else fails you can remove the flywheel to gain access to the side of that bolt.
