I need to remove the pinion yoke on "Ole Blue" to Up Grade to larger U Joints.
As you know, the pinion nut has a minimum torque of 240 ft lb. I had no way to hold and keep the pinion from turning.
So, I hit the scrap pile again.
One piece of 3/8" thick plate steel and one piece of 24" long 3/4" iron pipe. About an hour of layout, cutting and assembly.
I now have a Pinion Yoke Wrench.

That is one of the reasons I bought the HF cordless impact gun. It also makes rotating tires a real quick job with taking off lug nuts. I always dreaded all those nuts but now it's a piece of cake.

The HF earthquake cordless impact I bought is the best $220 I ever spent.

That's cool ! I've been pretty lucky the few times I had to swap a yoke or replace a seal, by tightening up the emergency brake cables and mashing the pedal thru the floorboard....lol.
