Bob, when I get some really tight ones, I resort to using a soft faced hammer on the end of the ring spanner I use on those bolts. I have modified the off-set on the ring spanner so it can be fitted when the shaft is at a tangent to the flange and the bolt head is at 112 o'clock. A god sharp whack or two usually breaks them loose.

Hope this helps.

I use a thin 11/16 socket and a breaker bar. Be sure to remove the safety wire first!

Me too. Like Larry, I use my 1/2" drive Craftsman 11/16" socket and a 1/2" drive 24" Craftsman breaker bar. It fits right on there with no problem. Much better than the KR Wilson tool, of which I have several but never use.
