Bolts on T-case

Hey, How the crud do you get those bolts ont the T-case flanges off? The instructions say to bend the crimps out and then take them off, but I can't seem to get anything sturdy enough to bend them,underneath them. My brother said he just spun them off with an impact gun. Do I run the risk of chewing something up if I do it that way? Any enlightenment would be appreciated.

Life is good.

Yep, take an impact to it, will come off easy! Add a little bit of WD40 to it.

Re: Bolts on T-case

It looks like you've got the right advice for getting the nuts off. When you put them back on, rotate each one to a different flange, and you will (probably) have fresh metal to indent after torquing down.

I wrestled with mine by lifting the indentations with a very small cold chisel (after breaking a couple of screwdrivers). I then loosely bolted half of a large pair of channel locks to the flange to provide resistance, and used a breaker bar. Not much problem after I figured out what to do.
