    Well Mark (GSi3.2) used an airgum with a torque multiplier - don't know if you read that far? - to finally get it off. Other than that, I'm not sure what else to try. Mark's the man to ask, but he's not been around the past few days.

    Basically a gizmo that fits between the nut and the airgun/ratchet/breaker bar and through a gearing mechanism multiplies the torque of the input force.

    Right,

    You need to find a commercial HGV garage to get it off, they use bigger and better Airgun's, as we found out, and they also Torque Multiplier's too. We borrowed one from an HGV garage to get mine off..

    Best of luck mate, i know how your feeling.
