I think the title speaks for itself....
That was a nice wrench.... WAS...
Does anybody like my motor vice?
And no, the coupler still isn't off....

They can sure be a tight son of a gun..........
Large pipe style wrench, the arched long on top short on bottom style, they grip tighter as you leverage them. (No slipping) with a 6 foot pipe is what I use on the stubborn ones.

A little heat goes a long way in removing stuff like that.

If it were a craftsman I bet it wouldn't have broken! I made a wrench out of flat stock stock then slip square tube over that for leverage and three feet of leverage is perfect! z

WTF? Um, holding the motor still. What's it look like? That was the only part of all this debacle that worked well... Floor jack pinning motor to floor worked awesome! Highly recommended.....
Yep, heated to glowing cherry red with mapp gas ( I know about the seal, but this is on the motor with the bad crank, so it doesn't matter ), 6' long cheater bar.
16" Crescent brand wrench warrantied, Brilliant!
Ongoing project. Beer became more interesting. This oughttta be really fun, hung over, tomorrow morning!
