Manually retracting Hydraulics

Anybody have any idea how I am suppose to manually retract my landing gear or slides with the set in this picture? The black cylinder on the left sie of the picture is the hydrualic pump. The place to insert the 1/4 hex bit attached to a drill is on top. There is little to no clearance. That is a steel bar you see above the pump In the last 5er the pump and hydraulics wa horizontal. I'd like to meet the rocket scientist that installed this vertically

An angle drill or an angle drive adapter if you have the headroom above the block.
Power Drills: Corded and Cordless drills at Sears.com

Can the block be rotated to point out?

I don't think I would get an angle drill in there. As far as rotating, it would be a major re-route of cables and hydraulic lines. Something to think about. Thanks Twisty.

Mine wasn't as bad as yours. They mounted my water pump directly behind the hydraulic pump. All I had to do was move the water pump. It's the lack of attention to detail from the manufacturer that bothers me.

Use a couple of flex joints for a 1/4" drive inside a pc of clear plastic hose. Works for me in a lot of similar places. The 1/4" drive extension will fit inside a 1/2" cordless drill.

Thanks dunnnc. I tried using my flex attachment the problem is that the 1/4 inch hex drive almost touchs the metal bar above. There is not any room for anything but the hex bit.
