    I can't get a hammer and a hammer on the lower right bolt bc of the bellmouth design and the axle shaft, I can barely get a dremmel up there to cut relief cuts in the nut like I'm in the process of doing now to get this bolt off

    How is the extraction job coming? Were you able to break the nut off after the relief cuts?

    Been making some progress on the relief cuts however I don't have electrical outlets in my storage unit so I'm using a cordless dremmel which dies pretty quick, so I keep having to charge it then cut, then charge it over night. It's a real PITA, but eventually I will get the damn nut off

    Or just torque to spec and you shouldn't have an issue. Maintenance, how does it work?

    ...why don't you just bolt it back together and drive it somewhere you have an outlet? You'll have a small exhaust leak since not all 5 bolts would be in, but you'd be able to do the maintenance in some place that at least has outlets.
