Sink or swear

All references are made while looking at the cabinet from the front.
I had a helper with small hands and arms. We popped the 110V wall plug out of its position on the upper, left hand side of the sink/stove/fridge cabinet [near the wall] and she was able to turn the clamp screw with a pair of vice grips by reaching through the hole. The vice grip had to be placed in position on top of the metal plate [a heat diffuser?] that is above the pipes by reaching wa-a-a-a-y back in behind the sink through the stove top hole. Closing the grips on the bolt head was done by guess and by God. It was a long, slow process and arm protection [long sleeve] was required.
Even after the clamps were removed the clamp brackets on the sink jammed against the sides of the hole and had to be worked through with wide screwdrivers as levers. I will use a rasp to open up the hole [notches] in line with the brackets before the sink is replaced.
It appears that the sink was installed in the cabinet before it was attached to the side wall and that no one considered the possibility that something might have to removed. Or maybe no one thought that the rig [like the Westy] would last this long.
Thanks for the help, the links and the sympathy.

If the engineers that designed these things had to rework them I'm sure the designd would be much different.

There is no manual for this stuff. That is why this web site is so helpful, (necessary).
