    the 1/2" impact gun with 125psi air and huge stand up dual cylinder compressor wont even begint o even remotely try and loosen up the ring gear bolts on this 14 bolt FF carrier, i dont know what to do, i have no way to hold carrier in place while i try a breaker bar, i would need like a really huge bench vise or something, i dunno



    thanks

    Have you tried any penetrating oil yet? How about heat? Usually heat something up and it will come right out, or at least thats been my experience. My 3/4" imapct had no problem busting them loose.

    are the ring gear bolts not reverse thread? just a though maybe you are trying to tighten them.

    I know what you mean about things taking longer. I'm getting the crash course since I had back surgery last week. It really stinks to drop a wrench now... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    14bolts are standard thread. 10 bolts are reverse. If the housing is still on the truck, put he carrier back in and use a pry bar to hold it steady for the breaker bar. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif/forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    No, they are not. They are standard thread.

    Try putting a bunch of penetrating oil on it, then put the whole carrier in the oven for an hour or so at about 200 degrees. Might help get the oil soaked in.

    Re: 14 bolt FF ring gear bolts, damn

    Tyler, hi, well there are a few problems though such as i dont have gas money right now, hmm plus truck is not running yet till i find enough $ to rebuild the carb, then to insure it, hmm..its gonna be a long time.


    ill probab;y just try taking carrier to the truck repair shop and maybe they will do it and not charge anything /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    dunno


    wheels, hmm, i should have a pair of 16" 8 lug, i know i have one for sure right now, i cant remember if anymore are left other than that one or not., i know i have pair of new six lug 16" wagons
    hmm..
    a ten spot and you could have pair of 8 lugger 16" if you need.


    thanks

    got them with blue point 1/2" impact gun, the Napa 1/2" impact at stepdads garage is a POS, the blue point gun removed the bolts like they were already loose or something,it was crazy,,
    the first place i went to and that is a new place here for truck repair said they were swapmed and could not help anytime soon, so i went to another place thats been here for years and years and one of the guys in there immediately grabbed air hose and gun and socket and went for it, i was suprised /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif i want to own or even just work at a place just like there when i grow up,lots of big trucks and tools and grease smells and other cool stuff galore !! its not fair i tell ya! :P




    is blue point that good of a brand ?
    they sure know how to make 1/2 impact guns anyways

    damn

    oh and the bolts are normal RH threaded, but they are really super fine threaded though



    so yay! something went right! woo hoo!
    about time...

    thanks

    Blue Point is sold by Snap-On and AFAIK, it is a rebadged Ingersall Rand gun which is pretty much undoubtably the best gun on the market.
