Yeah, I had to go out and get a 15/16 socket.  I borrowed a friend's
socket and ratchet with a 1/2" head (all my stuff's 3/8ths) and the
ratchet head was too big to fit in that space.  The deep socket I got
just grabbed on enough to get it free and later to crank it down and
crush that washer.  After I got all the stuff I needed it only took
about 15 minutes of lying on the ground and trying to figure out how
to get my hands up there.  About 1/4-1/2 cup of oil came out when I
unscrewed it and it ran straight down (rather than the course of the
leak) so beware.  I hate unexpected 'bleeding.'

Apparently the leak was coming THROUGH the switch, not the seal.  I
took it out for a spirited drive afterwards and not a drop came out
yesterday, though I'll admit I haven't looked today.
