i did some work on my son's '94 with a 3.0; the dreaded timing belt and water pump

if i recall correctly, # 1 cylinder is on the passenger side of the vehicle in the rear bank of cylinders

I had loosened off the alternator and moved it out of the way and If i recall correctlt, the is a bracket of some kind that ties the alternator mount to the block which I alos removed

this all involved contortions and scraped hands/wrists and foul language

I did this last year and so the details are fading

Other folks have suggested working from underneath the car

What I would suggest however, and this is just sound b practice, is that after you break the plug free, use compressed air to blow any accumulated bits from around the plg base so that it does not drop into the cyclinder

What I did was to spray some engine cleaner into the plug well while the plug was in place to loosen up the swarf and then I blew it out with compressed air.

I used a liitle mechanics mirror to allow me to see what i was doing
