    Tried that won't budge. tried breaker bar, tried hitting breaker bar to jolt it free still no good. At least now I know its a regular thread direction. so at least that is ruled out. Thank you

    Are you sure the 1/2" gun isn't weak... Try some lug nuts to test it...

    Unhook the air line and spray a little WD40 into the gun, then try it !!!

    Breaker bar and ass works everytime. I was scared to do that at first in case it was reverse threads. Thanks for all the help.

    you can also carefully use a breaker bar and rest it against the drivers side fenderwell/frame area and bump the starter.oh yea disable the coils first.
