That's a good idea as well. You're probably right about the torque on the
impact tool. It's just a little Milwaukee M18, so I think it probably has
less than 200 ft/lbs.
I think I could get this thing off with just the breaker bar, if I could
find a socket that wouldn't slip on it. I was thinking about trying the
Craftsman Extreme Grip sockets or one of those Go2 Socket adjustable bolts.
I'm not sure if the Craftsman Extreme Grip sockets would be any better than
their Bolt Off ones, which didn't do a damned thing.
