I am taking apart a G1022 TS to clean it up, learn about how it workes more etc and to eventually change all the bearings on it. First I need to figure out how to take this thing apart! The part I am having trouble with is the linking bar. (See picture) I don’t have the correct metric socket wrench but I do have an adjustable wrench that fits well and tight but man I put all of my weight into it and that nut will not come off the linking bar… help please!

I do have a propane torch but it is out of propane and have never heated bolts/nuts to get them off before…

Any tips would be appreciated!

Assuming there’s no loctite on those threads – have you tried spraying lubricant on it? WD-40? Aerokroil?

You could also try sliding a pipe over the handle of your wrench to increase the amount of torque applied – like a breaker bar.

And if you don’t have the right size wrench I’d make sure your adjustable wrench is as tight as you can possibly make it before attempting if it’s taking that much force to loosen.

get the right sized wrench without it you’ll end up rounding that nut over then you will have problems.

Yeah, that’s probably the smartest. And use a box end wrench.

Put a drop of penetrating oil on the nut/bolt seam and rap it once firmly, let it set 10 min, and then attack it.

BINGO that! And make sure you use the enclosed/rounded end and NOT the open end…

RE penetrating oil—Use PB Blaster. WD40 and others don’t help that much.

This almost doesn’t need saying, ... but I guess it does. If you think you are having trouble now, how much fun do you think you will be having once you have that nut nicely rounded off? not to mention how embarrassing it will be when you are back posting here asking for advice on working with a rounded off nut?
