How the hell do I get this summabitch off? It looks like it is normal threaded, not reverse. I'm following the procedure in the service manual for rear wheel removal on an 85ish CV80. It says to "remove the self locking nut" and that is all it says lol. I've been yankin on it with a breaker bar and smackin it with a hammer.

Any tips? What is up with the "self locking" Anything special I need to do?

Gaaaaawd I need to get this wheel off so I can replace the brakes.

well since no replies, I will reply in case anyone else looks upon this.

It wasn't welded or anything weird about it at all lol. It was just really stuck on there. Perhaps because of the wheel turning causing tightening or some nonsense

Anyways I just had to get an impact wrench on it. If I would have had a big breaker bar I"m sure that would have worked as well.

Yeah the torque spec is pretty high for this nut and then it gets seized on over time. I usually use a breaker bar and hold the rear wheel still with the brake, but if it's really on there I shove a stick in the wheel to hold it still and use an impact gun.
