Simple way to torque gearbox output flange

The output flange on the airhead transmission is held from slipping by good old fashion torque. No splines, no key, free spinning shaft. The nut takes 121NM. That is a ton. Not for the faint of heart. Unless...

Takes a Korn Tool, a couple of big ass wrenches and a strong table (you could also use a short piece of 2x12). Photo self explanatory. Clymer says it's a two man job. Good way to end up with a gearbox on the floor if you ask me. This method is much more secure and only one person is required.
