You and I must be about the same height Terry.I'm at that height where I'm too short to look down the distributor hole (to see the oil pump) but plenty tall enough to bang my head on the hood latch.
This got me thinking about a harness and sling, like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible. Sorry- not helpful, I know.
A full body harness and an engine hoist might work.

You would need someone to push the engine hoist for you and hand you tools.
You wouldn't have enough room to do anything unless you took the hood off.
