I know this is Duramax Forum, but I'm currently working on my sister's 97 7.3 PowerStroke. It has an oil leak on the top of the engine and I'm thinking it's the oil supplu line to the turbo. I just can't get the (4) 1/2 in hex bolts out of the base plate. The rest is a piece of cake. I was thinking about a 3/8in drive impact wrench I'm so desperate. Not enough room for a cheater bar on the breakerbar. My air ratchet won't budge it.

Any suggestions??

3/8 in drive. I don't have a 1/2 in drive air ratchet. That's why I was thinking the 3/8 in impact

LOL, I would but the reason I'm working on it is to save her the money of paying someone else to work on it. If it was up to me, she'd sell it and get a D-max.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it 1st thing in the morning.
