How do you open the engine hatch on a 28 ZX if the electric motor fails for some reason.

I was looking at my engine room today and there is no way in to it as far I can see.

I put in an exterior sleeve over the ram and pin system that would allow you to lift the hatch about 3 inches pull the pin and open it manually. I can send details and pics in you would like.

Please do, always interesting to see how others have solved it.

Mine would raise up all the way without any problem. Except it was heavy. It had a slot running up the sleave 1998 28zx. Had to lift when the batterys went dead.
