I have heard several members talk about use a breaker bar for those particularly stubborn nuts. I got this offer from Harbor Freight for a Pittsburgh 1/2" by 25" breaker bar for $7.99 (with an email coupon).



Any good? Need a bigger drive or longer bar?

shizz man that's cheap. GO for it. if you need even more leverage, go slap a pipe around the end of it.

I would say that for $8, if it DOES break, well.... it was worth $8 for the shot that it might not break.... i guess.

:lol:
LOL, just buy em two at a time. :D

But seriously, I have the exact same bar, and its handled plenty of axle and pulley nuts.

I've actually found some pretty sturdy tools at harbor freight. But for some reason i bought mine from sears. anyway, for that price i'd go for it.

Breaker bar with a pipe on the end works well, but on a honda, I would be careful about tearing things up. I reccommend applying slow and steady pressure as opposed to gorilla strength. The bolts on these critters are nice and solid, but a friend of mine has torn up the threads on 2 of his motor / tranny mount ups when he wasn't being careful.

If you happen the break that breaker bar, get a 3/4" T bar breaker bar. I bought one for a really stubborn, rusted, locked up Jaguar V12. Worked wonders. Good for frame bolts too.
