Well now I remember why I couldn't reverse the bolt - the same reason I couldn't get a torque wrench on the nut. The muffler is so close to the frame mount you can't fit a socket up there, so a 4 inch bolt is out of the question.
I just grabbed the longest wrench I have and gave it the "full body torque." It should hold.
