    Battery powered or air ratchet. Gives you extra reach

    See if you can align the tubing onto the through-hull and use a paint pen to draw alignment lines on both pieces. Then pull the through-hull off, install the tubing and clamp, slide through the hull and the bolt it all up.

    Dont put the block off on for the stock exhaust outlet untill after you get the pipe in.. use that hole. you can hold everything in place and tighten.
