Anyways.



A piston locking tool is about the only easy way of getting that clutch nut off.
they have been known to add alot of stress to the connecting rod and they have been known to cause damage to the top of the piston. so be careful with what you do.


you could also try holding the crank tightly if you havent tried that yet and getting the nut off by holding the crank with a pair of pliars or by putting the crank in a vise.

AND THE WINNER IS...

A good nights sleep, Rockstar energy drink, this forum, a zip tie folded and stuck through the exhaust (LHS out of piston locking tools. Hopefully I didn't jack the motor), and a hair dryer on the nut for several minutes. Came off with little resistance.

Woot! Woot!

Thanks everyone.

someone makes a delrin tool that is for this. you take the backplate off and use the tool to lock your crank in place. one end of the tool is for .21 and one is for .12 it is a lot easier on the connecting rod using this method.

or you could go to a hardware store and buy a nylon piston stop for a chainsaw, no joke. they're small and they fit between the rod and the crankcase to lock the piston. you just have to take off the backplate. they don't scar anything up either.

This happend to me last week with my v-spec--Remove back plate and insert 1/2 inch dia wooden dowel or what I used was the handle i.e plastic of my tire cleaning brush..They do make a crank holdind tool for when this happens..Wedge something soft but strong..wedge the bottom beefy part of crank...works every time...but they do sell tools for this purpose..

I did read it, I guess i didn't get it! I must be a retard or something. I was just trying to help, I think this will be the last time i do that. You and others love to jump on people if they misunderstood what someone was posting. Ahhhhh......... piss on it.

I tried the zip tie and blow dryer on my boss, but it didn't work as well as the clutch nut.

Thanks again everyone for their advice. I am officially up and running...for now.
