Got a 16 129, want to remove the skid for maintinance.... what special tool is needed to remove the rear bolts... they both spin and i can see i need a very narrow open end wrench to fit between the shackle and tunnel. Anyone run into this?

Thanks

You need a spanner wrench to fit in there to keep it from spinning.  Chris (C&T Powersports) sells them or you can make you own.  Here's a link to his site

FYI---My dealer must have used a impact wrench to tightened those R-motion bolts. The spanner wrench listed above  just opened up, and expanded when I tried using it. I had to buy a tappet wrench from McMaster-Car made by Snap-on to hold it. This wrench is a little thicker than the wrench listed above, and it fits nice and snug between the tunnel and link arm. If your going to be removing the skid every year or so, buy this wrench. I have two sleds, so this wrench is worth the cost.   JMO    When you torque them back on, the spec is 45ft/lb.

I dont know what u was thinking.... ct is alway the place to go..... thanks tnts4me.

Ultrarider.... i think 50 is to steep, a little heat to soften up the lock tight should do the trick.... ill gamble.
thanks for the tip

I think when Rev said 50 is a little steep he meant $50 for the price of the snap on wrench

When your trying to break the bolt loose, apply the turning pressure to the bolt, not the thin wrench, makes all the difference in the world on removal.

I see 45 ft/lbs, and the manual say's 45ft./lbs.  Don't think it matters either way.   The front skid bolts say 35 ft/lbs

I bought the spanner wrench from Chris and it has been used to remove 4 rmotions. The wrench is now useless. I think the steel is too soft. The nut just dug itself into the steel wrench oblonging the opening.
