2000 kawasaki prairie 400 castle nut help
Bought this a few weeks ago, found the rear differential seal and bearing are leaking. I got the new parts, but even with a breaker bar I can't break the castle nut loose on the axle. Ive tried all manners of leverage but do not wanna bend my axle....got advice? Or an impact gun I can borrow in the valley?
Release Lake Trout
+1 on this, heat will do some amazing things for old rusty bolts

An over night soak in Kroil should do the trick. Heat or an impact would be the next.
I just had the same problem with getting castle nuts off soaked it in Kroil and then used the impact took it right off the next day.
With Heat makes sure you don't burn any seals or boots. Grease CV on reasembly.
