Yeah, I have one of these. that's what I used to get the axle nuts off in the first place...that and a rubber mallet. Probably need to invest in a mallet with a metal head since I beat the rubber one to nothing... :hillbilly:

And wow! the "Torque dude" ($80 on thesamba) is the same price as the torque wrench I was looking at!

might as well just get the bigger 250 ft lb wrench I guess.

I would highly recommend the torque multiplier, much easier to apply 25-30 lb-ft of torque rather than 250.

Oh ok, that tool didnt make since to me at first because i thought it was only for gland nuts. I see it comes with the adapter for the drums. With its ability to multiply by 9, i guess i can go with a lower scale 20-100 torque wrench or something to that effect. Thanks for that link

Exactly. You'll easily be able to torque and remove any gland nut or axle nut with a 3/8" hand tool. Worth the investment, IMO.

No, it uses an 11mm (or 7/16") socket.
