Default Clutch hub nut removal

Hi Everybody,

What is the easiest way to remove a clutch hub nut? Keep in mind I don't have the locking tool that is shown in the repair manual. Is a impact gun a no no?

Impact is the way I go. Remember it's left handed thread.

Best to check this out. I do not have a lot of experience in there, been into it only one time. But i think that it is a normal thread.

What i did was jam a piece of 1/8" flat steel about 1" wide by about 4" [more or less] long between the two sprockets. Then a 1/2" drive socket with a 4' long pipe as an extension, and it came off quite easily.

I don't have manuals at hand but some years were normal some were reversed. Parts book should have it noted.

This thread and the links in it should help.

It was normal threads and I got it off with the impact. I tried the pipe and breaking bar but I couldn't keep the sprocket from turning.
Thanks for the help.
