My Max Ellery manual confirms that the nut on a 8cyl is a right hand thread. When I did one on a six I just used a large pair of vice grips on the nut, and a length of pipe which went over the handle of the vice grips. I jammed a screwdriver or socket handle in the belt and it came loose.

ef thermos are in and working well, and it only took me 8 hours (sarcastic) (4 hours more than it should have done).

MRE-50L, you should put that spanner in the tech docs forum.
