I havent had a trans out of one yet but had countless out of dodges, first try a new 6 point wrench and or socket, if that dont work try going down one size, metric or standard, something that just alittle smaller and try tapping it on and see if you can get enough bite on it, from there I

If the above doesn't help, try the "old" clamp on a vice grip tight and get them out.

Ok I had something similar happen when I did my engine swap on my 03. here is a couple tricks.

1st one. get a 6 point socket metric or imperial. try to make it a tight fit. and go from there.

2nd. there is this socket set called Metwrench. its made by westward. these sockets are different. they have no corners in the socket. one draw back is they lock on the side walls of the nut pretty good so it can get stuck. (work well on cultivator shovel bolts that get worn off.)

3rd, this is what I had to do. on the 6.0L the nuts for the TC are stupid and there is not alot of room. so if you round the nuts off really bad like I did to one of mine. take the tranny and split it as far as you can. only need about 1/2inch away from the bellhousing to engine. Then Take a LONG drillbit if you have a local airplane shop they will have millions of this drill bits #30 that are about 12 to 20 inches long. Now the fun part. take and drill into the nut a little bit. then after that get a long thin punch and a hammer. start knocking the nut to the loosen position. you might have to drill the nut in 3 or 4 places to get multiple places to put the punch on.


In failing that. sometimes a long bur on a die grinder to make the nut thin enough. then take a chisel and try to crack it in half.

hope this helps and doesnt confuse you. if you have an questions PM me and I will give you a call.
