having difficulty breaking the nut loose with just the brake. Anyone see any problem with using an impact to loosen the nut?

i have always found that a long1/2 inch ratchet and hittin it with a mallet was always a good way to break things loose without rippin my hand up.:thumbsup:

An impact is fine, BUT, don't put the transmission in gear when you use it. Just hold the wheel if you still have the chain on, or grab the sprocket with a rag and a big pair of pliers.

Using the engine to hold the sprocket puts a lot of unnecessary abuse on the trans and primary gears, and they get enough of that from you already. :thumbsup:
