Spanner Nut Removal Help Needed
I plan on taking a 400-500 mile trip from Jersey to Massachusetts this spring on my Rebel. Before that, I wanted to change (DIY) many of the parts: clutch, brakes, chain, reupholster the seat (bad tears), spark plugs, clean the carburetor, and fluids for now. I purchased her from a guy who lived in NYC, left her uncovered all year round, and didn't care too much for her yet she still purred like a kitten.
I began working on my clutch and at first the issue arose of the clutch lifter plate snapping with a bolt stuck on. After FINALLY getting that out months later, now I can not remove the spanner nut. I have the special tool but when I try to remove it, it just rotates with no tension. It's like the nut is connected to the piece behind it as it spins as well. I'm not sure what that could mean but I could really use some insight.
