Tranny Frame Housing Removal

This has turned into a challenge.

Impact wrench running 90 PSI can't break it loose.

Cheater bar Nope.

Soaked it with PB blaster, will add another shot tomorrow am and then try again tomorrow after work.

I'm pretty sure this hasn't been removed since new 120K ago.

Started to chew the shoulders off the housing nut.

Any Ideas?

Denny

Do you mean the cross member at the read of the tranny? Or the bellhousing? Breaker bar and three feet of pipe worked for me on the cross member. If it is the bellhousing, you sir have a bigger rust problem than us in the upper Midwest... I didn't think that was possible.

Heat is your friend on this Denny. If you don't have an oxy/acetylene available pick yourself up a MAP gas torch at your favorite hardware store and heat the crap out of it. Had to use mine last week to get the rotors off a car that hadn't had a brake job in 13 years.

Sorry, should clarify the Tranny Remote Filter housing behind the Radiator.

May have to cut it off in pieces, soaked it in PB Blaster as I'm all out of AeroKroil will get another chance to break it loose tonight.

Used the Impact Wrench to no avail. and a 3' Cheater bar, nada.

The impact is going to be the best option, wrenching on it is just going to bend the bracket and mess up the lines.

But why are you only running 90 psi !?! Crank that thing up to 120, if your compressor will only do 90 that's your problem, that's not a big enough compressor for an impact.

What is the torque rating on your impact? Cheap ones don't really crank that hard.

I dunno it's a loaner. Big honkin gun type i'll try to run up the PSI on her.

I have another housing in will call and may just drill it and drain it then saw it off in pieces.
