BTW, I've alread put liquid wrench on days ago and again yesterday,
tapped all around the secrew heads each time.
The impact wrench fits perfectly into the 3 oil filter screw slots
(Phillips) and pretty well into the other two slots.
I could heat these screws with a propane torch, but <sheepishly> I
don't want to change the finish on the oil filter (aluminum, maybe),
or burn off the paint on the starter motor cover. Will the propane
torch do this, and will it help much to get these screws out?
I'm willing to wait until the engine is running and the parts are hot
to clean the oil filter -- I plan to change the oil a second time
after 3 or 4 hours of use -- but I would like to oil the starter motor
before I try to use it. The kick starter doesn't seem to engage, and
I'm hoping some hot oil will free that up too, so I think I really
need the starter motor for a while.
How do I use an impact wrench?
Which way should it turn when I'm compressing it if I am about to to
use it to unscrew a bolt or screw? Which direction are you looking
from it? :)
If I push the front of wrench back into the back of the wrench it
turns either clockwise or counterclockwise, when looked at from the
heal of the wrench, depending on the setting. (The opposite of
course when looked at from the tip of the wrench)
Which way should it turn if I want to use it to unscrew a bolt or
screw? Which way are you looking from it? :)
I'm trying to unscrew the screws holding on the oil filter of my
recently acquired 69 Honda, not run for 35 years. Also the starter
motor cover. So I can clean and oil them respectively.
I have this problem every time I need to use this wrench and I figure
it out, but since I'm over 50, or maybe since I was 20, I can't
remember from one time to the next! This time, I think I have it, but
none of 5 screws will budge!
