Flywheel bolt are being a pain in the a**. I've hit them with an impact, air ratchet, i've even nearly pulled the engine down on top of myself trying to get them off with a breaker bar. What is it going to take? Anybody have any suggestions? I've got to get this thing together today.

ah. I guess maybe those vehicles were motors that spun in the opposite direction of a d-series??

are you having problems with the flywheel spinning when you try to loosen the bolts?

hit the bolts with a hammer.. then use the impact.. always works for me
I did this, but used a tap so it's more direct.

Or always try getting some air spray, for computers or what not..and spray it upside down onto the bolt, hope for the best.

Heat them up and let them cool then hit them with a hammer, then use your impact on it, or your breaker bar. I had the same prob on my under drive pully!
so try that, thats what i did and it came of. but my fly wheel bolts came off pretty easy;)
good luck man!

Lesson learned: Don't expect a $20 impact to do much of anything except make noise. I got them off. Finally. Just needed a better impact. Thanks for your help.
