I will say that when I went to put a rebuilt alt. on my Daughter's '89 Accord, I had to pull the drivers side drive axle to do it!
And the last dude that put one on it before tightened the axle nut down to about 1200 pound foot!
It took me and my Son using a 3' cheater pipe and 3/4" stuff to pop it loose!
I was jumping up and down on the cheater bar as my Son held it tight to the axle nut!
You talk about pissed off!
If the dude that had done that would have been there, I would have beaten him up severally!!
There is NO since in doing this shit!
Plus to top it off the asshole rounded the nut off perfectly round that bolt the alt. swings on!! I had to use my cheap HFT air hammer and a chisel to break it loose because the nut was deep in a f**, "V", and I couldn't get to it with ANYTHING except my air chisel!!
A two hour job took me 3 f** days!!
Now back ta the lug-nuts!!
