    I was given a brake job on an old Chrysler Imperial. 1/2" impact gun on the wheel nuts, and they would not budge. Raised the power to maximum, still refused to move.
    Got out the 1" impact driver and put the air pressure to maximum. That did the trick, off came the wheel nut along with the stud.
    Did you know some Chrysler's used to have wheel nuts with a left hand thread?

    I've just spent £180 getting round (sort of) that dreaded l/h thread **** on my little Dart, had 20 stainless nuts made as the studs are no longer avail for the conversion to r/h so needed 5 l/h thread
    All my other MOPARS are r/h but this little ****...had to buy a £25 l/h thread tap just to make 5 nuts and keep it stock, threw a half shaft in the back, front, one side.....grrr all for stock ,14" wheels to boot.

    Not for a while, - at Rockauto at least- however, these are 4x5 bolt pattern/drums, the studs are way different to 4.5x5

    Update -parts finally arrived, had quite a job getting them, the duplex ones which are standard on mine are unavailable so I am going to convert to simplex, I have been told this is just a straight swap.












    made a tool to lock the engine and swung on my breaker bar and this happened, have now ordered a 3/4 breaker bar and socket should be here wednesday.
