Go to Harbor Freight and by a set of sockets in Metric and SAE. They are less than $15 for each set. Go and see what fits best and return what you do not use. Donate the used set to your buddy as a thank you for letting you use his impact gun.

Looks like a Reliable actuator to me.

Sodar, I almost did that the other day, but I didn't see the ones in that price range for the size I need. I do see them online so I may call the store before I go back as it is a little inconvenient going over that way.

Just an update. I got the impact sockets and the correct size was 15/16". The 1/2" drive did not even touch the bolt. It didn't move at all. I will try a breaker bar next week to see if I can get it to budge.

Folding Tongue Stuck

I'm not sure if drilling a couple relief holes in the outer part so you can inject some PB Blaster is a good idea structurally but some how you need to get some penetrating oil in there to loosen things up

I just did the Reliable to UFP retrofit and I made sure to put some highly water resistant marine wheel bearing grease inside the sleeve and on the bolt

It's a near zero tolerance on mine and I could see how some rust could make things difficult but you would think a half inch impact wrench would budge it a little

I wonder if a propane torch would help or have you already tried that?? Sure hate to mess the paint up though!

Torch is my last resort option, but it looks like I am nearly there. I may try taking it in to a tire shop to see if they could at least pop the bolt loose. If I do that, then maybe by folding the tongue on the pin, it will help to break it loose.

I would try taking it somewhere they have a larger impact. The tire shop might not have much larger than yours. A truck shop will.
