Default Re: Acorn nut stuck on stud

Well I replaced 3/4 of my nuts on the head. I couldn't get metric hex nuts that were long or shouldered, so I got some normal-sized ones and some appropriately sized washers. Seems to be working out great so far and they seem to actually loosen less from temperature changes than the original acorn nuts. One of my acorn nuts actually stripped! That's why I had no choice but to replace all except the one that's seized on the stud. I don't have a good vice, so I need to find another way to get it off. I really hope I don't jack up the stud, in which case I'll be mighty angry. :mad:
