Quick question...

I fiiiiiinally got the coupling nut off the (front?) of the engine and got the block split open. I'm trying to remove the crankshaft as the cylinders are stuck and my plan is to bang them out with a 2x4. I ran into the issue that I can't seem to get the nuts that keep the cylinder to the crank off. Can't get a wrench on there because it will only bite the last quarter or so and a socket won't fit because there's no clearance. Anyone have a trick for getting these off? They are torqued down pretty good.

My recollection is that is is possible to get a socket on the nuts in question. In my case I had to find a socket that would fit in order to use a torque wrench when reassembling the engine. I'm not sure but I think my sockets are SK Wayne. Undoubtedly other thin wall sockets are made by others.

Best tegards,

Be sure to use 6-point sockets.

Here's a few examples:
