For future reference...

For future reference prawns are those tasty marine creatures, Pawns are those small "expendable" front row chess pieces and pawls are a "common component of a ratchet". (Wikipedia)

To stop that sort of problem recurring, consider using loctite or similar on all threads. Stops corrosion and binding. Everything on our boat is assembled with loctite whether it needs to be locked or not!
Regards,
Richard.

Loctite comes in several variations. I'd use TefGel.

Congratulations on getting that last one out of there.

kind regards,

The free beer goes to everyone that offered a suggestion. You do have to come to Oriental, NC to get it though because I will want to have one too.

Seriously, it was great to put this problem up here and get good responses that really did help. The impact wrench was a simple manual kind - not air powered or hydraulic.

So I'll remember..... EAT Prawns, LOSE Pawns, and REPLACE Pawls
