Jul 18: Too small..!

Jul 18: Too small..!

A standard VW engine's flywheel is fixed to the crank with a huge 36mm nut. I have a socket just for the job, along with a 3ft long flex handle for the 220lb/ft of torque it requires. My engine though, not being at all stock, has a heavy duty nut that needs a bigger socket, a thicker flex handle and 350 -400 lb/ft of torque. This is going to be tough!

other sizes: small medium original

Good b/w. You just need a bit more leverage...

David, get a grip on yourself, and sock it to it! I know this is twisted humor, but please don't bolt. LOL.
And besides all that, I am always impressed at how sharp and nicely lit your b&w photos are .. like this one!
