If you know someone with a 1/4 electric impact gun, carefully use that with the a socket (Along with the advice above) if there is ample room. I have done this on stuck carb screws with great success......Use caution, too much oommmff can snap them off as well. Use moderation.
Brodie i'm sure you did this by now but i had to use a 1/2" impact gun to zip it out.it's not how tight it is it's holding the motor from turning.it worked well for me and the bolt is pretty sturdy.just make sure you put the o-ring back on it with some oil to reassemble.
Ooopps! I thought you were talking about the small bolts around the cover.........Yeah, you will need something bigger for the center bolt. I use a 1/2" air impact gun that is rated at like 500ft/lb to do the center nut on clutch baskets. Sometimes I got to hold it on there a few seconds for it to break it loose.
Does that bolt have left handed threads?
i took my leak sheild off and put it on the shelf for a # of reasons
1 you can't adjust the valves with it on
2 it still leaked no matter how i sealed it
3 i want a backup starter yet
i just sealed the heck out of the pull start and put it back on and i should have save myself the $50 or so bucks that it cost.
