I was reading another thread, it talked about using impact gun to remove or torque it...
The threads on it are really really really fine. Not sure whether the nut, or the zillion- dollar hub, would be sacrificed if you messed up.
The torque is supposed to be 70-ish Ft. Lbs. which seems like a lot, but I still would use hand tools on it.

That’s very good advise ! Impact not needed as the torque spec isn’t that high.

yep, always better for accuracy then brute force of impact gun.

though the headache for most is getting it in a vise to hold still while tightening it. but if you use a torque wrench once to set it, you can mark the nut on the clutch with a paint marker so you could just line it up after that with an impact wrecnh. save some headache.
