Default New Snap On tool for removing balancer bolt

You can get rid of your 1/2" breaker bar and 12" cheater bar and jumping on top of the motor to loosen the crankshaft bolt on a gen III motor. Snap on now has this air hammer extension that goes to a bar that has a 1/2" drive where you put your socket on the other side of the bar is a handle. So you hit the air hammer with one hand and stabilize the tool with the other. You effectively can loosen or tighten the balance bolt, you switch around which side the air hammer and handle goes on. This wasn't specifically designed for balancer bolts but is an intedted use of it as most people will probley just use it for that.

not a new tool matco has had one in their catalog since 2003 thats 3/8 drive. it basically turns an air hammer into an impact.

the matco part number is br88

personally i'll stick to just using my impact and save the cost of this air hammer attachment.
