Depending on the diameter of the drive screw, if it is large enough to not pass through the square hole of a 1/2" socket, seat the socket then run the screw on to the socket. You could also use a 3/8" drive socket if the drive screw is not large enough in diameter but those sockets aren't quite as robust as a 1/2" drive socket. This will effectively extend the length of the drive screw.I bought OTC 7394 to remove my rear hub, but this tool is too large for the job - the arms are too long/drive screw is not long enough. Does anybody have a recommendation for a better tool?
Yes, an impact gun will cause that to happen but it will likely happen without the gun - just not as soon. How much short is the drive screw?I tried that with an impact socket but it kept falling out. The turning motion of the screw causes the socket to move around, and eventually the socket falls out.
It has a 1" drive screw and is rated for use with an impact wrench, which I am using. It's just too big!
