you guys are prolly tired of this sprocket subject but i am having some serious troubles getting my front sprocket off.. I have tried everything.... From a 32 mil with the impact...just started to round the fuggin thing off. so i said okay ill try like 1 1/8.......it was just as loose as 32 got. then i tried 1 on the first set of flats on the nut..and it actually just twisted the down inside the nut.... then i tried to heat..but def didnt wanna do that cause of the coolant hoses....and i gota torch...i was thinkin mabey a propane torch but even then i dunno....any help would be apprecited...

and, remind me....does the 32mm fit all the way back against the sprocket? or on the smaller nut?....cause i didnt use the one that fits the back part, but had no problem with mine comin loose with an impact.....i seem to think it was 27, 29 mm or something :dontknow:

the 1 inch will get wedged on there and you wont get it off, ide try the smaller mm instead of the 32

Hate to ask this but you do know it's normal thread to take the nut off right(meaning lefty loosey)? Also, get the real size sockets in MM....both sizes and a breaker bar at 25in + and a buddy....then you might be closer...just do that first and chime in when you do...I got some Ideas.:cool:
