Is there any way to get to this bolt without splitting open the transmission...

A 12 MM socket and a long extension probably will reach that bolt.
Earlier transmissions had two roll pins, one inside the other and that was pretty tough.
There is an inspection plate with three bolts you need to remove

seen at the bottom of this transmission.

Removing the transmission from the car makes the job easier.

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

Well after getting the bolt loose, I never could get the shaft to line up to get the bolt threaded back on. Trying to line them up was like trying to fetch minnows swimming in corn oil. I guess I could waited a couple of weeks for the transmission fluid to all drip out and clean in there with carb cleaner in order to manipulate the parts without them being so slippery, but with Geogonfa's help it took less time to drop the transmission. His recommendation that we should look at the clutch was spot on. It was fried (although it seemed to be working like new). He showed me how to drop the transmission and install a new clutch. We did, of course, replace the shift shaft seal. I still think a shift shaft seal and boot can be replaced without dropping the transmission or a mod be made at the shift shaft to make it really easy. Next time.

It only takes a couple of hours for you young guys to R&R a tranny.
Thus, you save a lot of headaches by simply pulling the damn thing out.
It can be done 'in situ', but will take a long time and really piss you off.

I'm real glad we pulled it, otherwise I'd have been pulling it in a couple of days. My clutch was just about to scar the flywheel. Whew!
