    You need to unscrew the studs from the drivers side motor mount to slide the cover off, of course support the engine when you do this with a jack and a block of wood on the oil pan, and then all of the cover bolts come off and then the crankshaft pulley (four outer small bolts, leave the large middle bolt) and the cover should come off.

    Depending on how the customer did the conversion, there might be more that has to come off before getting the cover off.

    I'm assuming this is a 6 bolt cover?

    I kinda think the customer somehow got the 6 bolt cover's hole over the modified mount without cutting it first.

    For clarity, what is tight? the mount hole? Or just tight against the inner strut tower/frame? Cant get the cover out, away from the engine, enough to get the mount thru the cover?

    I bet spyderdrifter is correct. This is the 1 pc cover, correct? It was likely installed with the engine out of the car, so you probably wont be able to get the angles needed while its in the car... But its just a guess*

    Can you include pics and more description of the specific issue?
