I have an old broken torque wrench to use as a breaker bar.

That makes sense - it probably ratchets (maybe still ratchets?), and is probably longer than a typical 1/2" drive ratchet handle.

Yes, but it will be too short. 3/8" drive torque wrenches are usually not very long, and the point of a breaker bar (or flex handle) is to have enough length for good leverage.

Brian,
You probably haven't seen the guns Alf has on him. I mean that man's got a set of wings.

Now I know who to go to if I'm around the North Shore of Lake Erie with a stuck bolt and a too-short wrench!

Hi: Iowa Dave... Thanks for the build up!!! I've never pumped iron but nearly 20 yrs. winding the big spring on the buses made a difference.
I finally got a 1/2 drive torque wrench at Crafty Tar. Paid the 2 bucks more for it then went for a deep 21mm socket... They're out of stock. SHEESH!!! Alf

I'm impressed. I had my brakes checked shortly after I picked up my trailer, and the guy did it for no charge. I asked about the charge for adjusting brakes and packing wheel bearings and he said it would be about $400 for 4 wheels. This was a truck repair place. Seemed like a lot to me. Where do people have this work done, and for how much?

Local RV dealer/repair shop did mine last year. Wasn't quite $400, but it wasn't cheap. I seem to recall $80/wheel, or thereabouts.
