Of course the axle nut is stuck beyond belief, I tried a breaker bar with a 7' fence post attached to it and stood on it after I soaked it heated it etc. I couldn't get a good picture either. If anyone has a suggestion, thanks.
As far trying to remove the axle nut, when I need to do that, I just remove as much of the indentation on the nut as possible, and then use a 1/2" electric impact wrench, and it comes off OK. I use a torque wrench when attaching the nut, but the electric impact wrench to remove it. - Jim
