    Holy @#@# batman! I've got my 1/2" impact gun going full bore at 120 PSI and only 3 bolts have relented. How the heck do you get these buggers off?

    1) I do not have a bench or vice.
    2) I've tried a pry bar in the cross shaft hole for leverage to no avail.

    Heat?

    They are installed with red loctite so heat or about 500 lb/ft of torque should bust them loose:D .

    I braced the carrier a bit differently and was able to break the bolts loose with a 3" breaker bar. Ug.

    Well, the lockright is now in the carrier and ready for re-installation...

    I break them loose while it's still in the diff housing, and use a long breaker bar, never really had an issue with them

    how much torque does your 1/2 impact putout? if it is a cheapie you might just need a more powerful impact. my ingersol rand puts out 450lbs torque, mine came right off and they were factory installed bolts. just my .02 cents.
