Yep, I'm doing it with the wheel on the ground.
I just broke my 1/2 socket drive. Must be pretty
stuck!

The penetrating oil hasn't made any difference. I let it soak for a couple hours.

How much heat might this need? I only have a MAP gas tourch. I doubt that'll heat it enough.

I'm pretty certain it is a left handed thread. I guess I can go to the dealer and buy the nut and see that way. There isn't much thread showing past the end of the nut.

Bruce,
on another topic we figured out the problem.

The person that had work done on it previously had cemented the nut on, and he had to cut the shaft and replace.

Just thought id let you know
