How does Hank work on these salt fested cars?
when you need heat, it has to be oxy-acet or you'll never get enough heat to burn out the rust.
i have yet to have an axle nut not come off with my 1/2 impact or 3' breaker. mine aren't harbor freight tools either. (not saying anybodies elses are, just pointing out proffessional tools can save headaches)
worst trouble ones i found are the ram fronts. they have a washer that the nut likes to embed a bit into.
i've had axles not come out of hubs though. but it's rare.
(i'm not hank either, just making commentary)
