I looked at it tonite and it looked like I needed a soi=cket wrench.. But i couldnt see the view directly on it from "top" of the screw.

Clockwise is down right?

I believe the socket size is an 8mm but yeah it's easier with a Phillips head screwdriver. If you look top down you'll see small plastic guides next to the screw. Tighten to lower, loosen to raise.

Ratcheting box end wrenches are great for this and getting the #2 coil pack screw off.

I think those might be the only tool I don't have yet but I've borrowed a set a few times and man do they make a lot of work easier.
