Not a job for the impatient.

Tell me about it It took 4 hours to get as far as I did.

I thought I would have to split the nut at one point.

When my Lag shafts went I took it into a stealer to have them done (I could afford it then but can't now) and they had no hesitation in getting the oxy torch on it. So much so that I was back 3 weeks later to have the wheel bearings done. Yep they had melted the grease out of them

DOnt last long when the're dry
Currently in planmeca's garage:
Renault Laguna 1.8 16v x 2 and a lot of other things. could really do with a tidy up to be honest I'll do it tomorrow
