case splitting

Recommended Posts

I just have a simple question; I'm in the process of splitting my cases

and am having a hell of a time removing the counterbalancer nut. I've tried

loosening it and have put more leverage on the thing than I feel should be neccessary and I've realized it might have a reverse thead like the crank nut.

Can anyone shed any light on this? My thanks in advance.:banana:

Thanks, thats what I love about TT. But wow, if that's really the case then

that nut is on there tight! Never had this much trouble before.

Has it already been loctited? Perhaps a tad bit of heat would help?

Air tools...

Hehe, That is where I would have started but not everyone has air tools at their disposal.

Air tool is really the best way to get these parts off. If you do not have access maybe you can bring it to a local automotive shop. I am sure they would be willing to blast it off for you.

Had to have my wife stand on it while I took a four foot

breaker bar to it. Thanks for all the help guys; I was so close

to just saying to heck with it and exacting my revenge on it

with a sledge. :banana:

Air tools is the only way to go. You can cause more damage (rounded nuts, hit in the nuts, broken fingers, cuts n bruises......).....Then its worth..:banana:
