This axel bolt is giving me hell! i have tried with a breaker bar and a pipe to get th bolt off and it still wouldnt work. my friend came over with his compressor and we tried with 90psi and sprayed it down with some rust away and that didnt work. the next thing im going to try to do is heat it up and use the compressor to get it off? is there any other way i can get this danngg bolt off??? any help is appreciated.

axle nut

If you are talking about the axle nut did you unpeen the nut lock tab first?? Turning it the right direction? Get a longer pipe.

This works..or you can goto Home depot and get a HUSKY air powered impact wrench..the one with 400(maybe it was 500) FtLbs of Torque. I used that to beat that nut off pretty easily.
Returned husky after finished.
