I have found an open and boxed end 14 millimeter ratcheting swivel head wrench. It's easy to get to the back and bottom starter bolts with this wrench.

i have a set of these and use them a fair amount but i don't like how the swivel head flops around when you're trying to use it. another forum member came by one time and he had a set but they had a lock for the swivel head -- you set it to the flexed position you want and press a pin to lock it. i've been looking for a set of those for a decent price ever since but every time i find them, they're over $100 for a set. too rich for my blood. i'll keep putting up with the annoying floppy flex heads for now.

In my opinion at all is worth its weight in gold if it does what it's created for

I have some from Husky, they're pretty awesome. Unless they have the reverse lever and you spend 20 minutes continuously bumping the lever without realizing it.
But...did you try hitting it with a hammer?
