Break out your arm with three elbows.

Yeah, it's a pain. What I do, is pull the air filter box off the top of the throttle body, and lay a piece of plywood across the radiator support, and throttle body, and lay on that to play with the stuff on the distributor. It isn't real comfortable, but, you can actually do what you need to do, and almost see what you are doing. Almost......

It just pulls off. If it has been there a while, it can be reluctant to come off.
