I'm almost positive it's LH thread. Rotating the wrench counterclockwise ,as viewed from the front of the engine, tightens the nut..

Yep, does anyone on here have a trick for it??????????????

Just read the thread and it got me thinking... I had to take mine off a long time ago on another 1st gen and failed, so I actually paid someone to do it.

I put a 1 3/8 wrench on it and smack the top of the wrench with a hammer and it will usually break loose. But one other time I had to heat the nut a little to get it loose.

My Dakota I actually used an air hammer with a strait chisel in it to knock the nut loose.

I was sure my ctd was left but it was getting to be a long day in the shop do I decided to pack er in for the night before I created more work for myself.
