Can't Find the Distributor Clamp!

Just can't stay away

Folks: I'm somewhat embarrassed to be asking this, but here goes. I'm getting ready to adjust the timing on my 23rd series (with Auto-Lite distributor). I'm feeling around the base of the distributor, and I can't detect anything that "feels" like the distributor clamp, much less figure out what tool I need to get in there to loosen it. It seems like a very tight clearance under there. Do I need a mirror, or do I need to get up underneath the vehicle, or what? I assumed this would be easy, but I guess not for me. A picture would be helpful!

If you have this type dist believe the lower bolts just hold the dist to engine. Adjust is done by loosening the screw connecting vac advance shaft to the dist and rotating body via the slot in relation to vac advance.
