Greets All:

I am all for inexpensive tools for occasional jobs, but sheesh, the finish work on the jaws of the "Tusk Clutch Holding Tool" is downright abysmal. There are rough ridges that can cause indentations on your clutch hub while using the tool.

I took a Dremel and a fine mill bastard file and dressed the jaws nicely so as to avoid additional damage. Just sayin'... Now it is a damned fine unit for the cash.

Impact wrench works good! I leave the wheel on, 5th gear plus rear brake seems to always do the trick.
