Mount bolts

Post by Boggasscamp » Sun Jan 12, 2020 8:00 am

I have 0-320 with cone mounts forwards and I can’t find a 3/4 socket or any wrench’s to get the nut off I’ve tried t grind wrench’s thin enough to go in the mount on the engine side nothing works is there a special tool I might need? Thanks

It's a pain, sometimes you can get lucky and wedge a chisel or screw driver in to hold it. When you put it back together weld a piece of 1/4 inch round bar on the nut at a 90 degree angle. You won't need a wrench after that.
