I used a box end on one, and a crows foot on the other.

The best wrench that I use for the inside nuts is a 9/16 "offset" boxend that was in my dad's collection. You don't see these old style wrenches anymore.

My dad had a couple of wrenches that he called "half moon", and used them for manifold and starter, etc. work! thanks; sonny
