I cant see what im working on all 8 tops but can feel but cant really work since the tin wrapped cords are in the way. Know what im talking about?"
You need a 11mm or 7/16 gear wrench,and a 1/4" drive ratchet with an 11mm swivel socket,also an 11mm deep socket with a short extension. You need to remove the large aluminum brace plate for access from underneath,and you need to break off the heat shields from the gaskets on the top.
