Dizzy wheel cylinder

I've recently purchased a 2000 LS1 for commuting purposes and am replacing brakes. Bad wheel cylinder and although normally simple job, i'm having issues. I see a single mounting bolt and brake line. Assuming the brake line is 10mm, the mounting bolt however im not sure of and the wonderful engineers at saturn decided the placement would be ideal in a location thats impossible. Any suggestions on tool choice and tips to remove the bolt. Thanks in advance, Wayne

I think there was a thread about this before on this site. If I remember right someone said to a cranked wrench, didn't work for me but a long skinny open end wrench did.

Is access to the wheel cylinder mounting bolt problematic due to the contol arm's attachment to the knuckle nearby? I've since converted my LS1's rear drum brakes to rear disc so I can't recall what that used to look like.

P B, a small hammer, and a drift pin for access to the bleeder. Wacking it really works for me. Did I mention patience? Then a new bleeder screw so the next person in there will have better luck.
