Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: Bill,
: Sometimes nothing but brute force works to back out a stubborn pinion nut. I made a simple but effective holding tool for the yoke which lets you use a breaker bar with socket and a four foot long pipe extension to loosen the nut. I had one that not even my impact gun with 150 psi would budge!
: Send me an emai and I will send you a picture of the tool if your impact gun won't do the trick.
: Karl

Thanks Karl: But its Juston that the problem. Tool sounds nice. Assume you know it is possible to bend the Yoke. Just as burte force is sometimes needed for that stubbern nut on the output of transmission. I have also used a socket and long 1inch braker bar on the frount crank nut to hold the engine from turnning. Short of what we do could also use a socket and braker bar and hit it with a dead blow hammer. (and hit and hit and hit) Same effect as a impact gun. Bill
