...the bolt connecting the circular to the pinion...

What is the secret to tightening the 12-point bolt that connects the circular to the pinion?
The circular and driveshaft flanges prevent the use of a standard 12-mm
12-point (1/2" drive) socket even when using an extension!
Tanks!

Heat the heads of the fastener, because locktight is used. Break free with a 12 point wrench.
