Help~ =.=" Tight front sprocket bolt

So I have the right size socket, torgue rench, and have my lady standing on the other side with almost her entire weight on the rear brake. I just couldn't get it loose. Any other better ways?

With that bolt, the "righty tighty" rule still applies yea?

2x4, it's a piece of wood. Shouldn't have to press on the brake, but then again, it can't hurt either

Might be a left hand thread , I'm to lazy to verify that. Otherwise put a pipe over the ratchet handle for leverage

Next time just come over to my house with your bike. I have all of the tools here. How big is your air compressor? Hopefully it can run an impact.

Also, if you can look at the stud to verify which way the threads are going in relation to the nut... Could be a left handed thread...

That should work. Most impacts are not recommended to run on more than 90psi. Just to be on the safe side use an impact rated socket, also wear safety glasses and gloves.

thanks for the thought.

It seems like the impact wrench is good tool to invest, maybe I should go get one tmr since I've already have a air compressor, what do u'all think?

Just got off phone with Squanto84, thanks Scott, will for sure text u tmr and inform u whaz going on here.

An impact set is a great investment if you do a lot of wrenching. Doesn't Autozone have one to use for their loaner tool program?
