These things are difficult to get here. I'll try with a normal one first, and hope my impact wrench can do it. Because 8ft pipes are kind of discouraging ;-)

I do not have an impact wrench or air compressor

I am positive I do not have a long (deep as we call them) socket. However, the standard chrome socket may not hold up to an impact wrench so be careful.

Sometimes you can get by with a short socket just don't seat it fully on the breaker bar, oh, and my pipe is only 6ft. Long.

Well, to close the subject too, just discovered the real faulty clutch cause.

Cracked clutch hub, the base of the shoulder the frictions press against.

I am told not to use original, but better aftermarket. Need to locate this part from Barnett or others...

Wow! Of all of the things that could have been wrong with your clutch, I am surprised that it was this!
