What a bear to get back in after getting the spacer replaced.
My last tech hint was to disconnect the right motor mount and tilt up the engine afew inches with jack to allow for access room. Any thoughts? Mike

There's no need to do that. If you turn the wheel you should be able to clear the steering rack and it should go right in. You also have to make sure the starter drive is retracted.

Ihave turned the wheel sharply to the left opening the area. This helped. I was able to get it out at the time because the drive gear was coming off the shaft. I could pull one part out at a time. One problem could be is that I have jacked up the car only on the right side so I could get in there and do it.

Would this make a difference?

As long as it clears the steering rack it should go in. Jacking up the right side only should work. Did you spin it to get the drive to retract. If you don't you may not be able to get it in. The hardest part is holding it in place while you thread the bottom bolt.
