    I have the tranny out of my '93 silverado z71...I can't get the nut on the output shaft off... First i tried a ratchet and a hammer and no luck. Then i tried an air ratchet and no luck w/ that either. The only other idea i had was an impact gun. This probably was not the best choice since it rounded off the notches on the nut... Now i have a nut with rounded notches, how am i gonna get if off???:(

    Im not sure about this but is this nut left hand threads? If it is and you are trying to take this off by turning it to the left it will not work. Just a thought.
    If all else fails call your local tran guy,not a national chain but somebody who has been around and ask him how to get it off.

    Regards Mike
