There you go, BTDT. There are ways of getting around the issue. Remember the angle of attack I mentioned? Simply a way to use the construction design of surrounding objects to aid you, not hurt you.

Look, there's 15 ways to skin a cat. I started doing this after observing how many times the torque did not seem very high at disassembly time. No way was there 175 ft.lbs. on nut then, maybe as low as 50 in some cases. I started looking for a way to guarantee the full torque amount. It seems to show, at disassembly now years later they seem to be tighter than they were before.
