Re: GW lug nut remover(Harbor Freight Torque multiplier) #93645
Can't speak to the Harbor Freight product since I've never used it but here's a tip that will enable easier rear lug removal. I use anti-seize compound on the threads. I think I read about it on this forum and maybe Mr Harmon himself recommended this tactic. Yeah, anti-seize likely screws with getting an accurate torque of 80 ft lbs but I figure that torquing a lug nut isn't nearly as critical as torqing head bolts.
BTW, while the rear lugs loosen easier than the first time I loosened them, it still takes some focused attention. The point is, even with using anti-seize, the rear tire isn't going anywhere you don't want it to.
