[ROVERNET - UK] tough nut (and more brake woes)

Thanks to all for your replies. I finally managed to get the nasty
job done, using an impact tool and a modified socket, 1/16 smaller
than the nut and pounded onto it. I broke the impact tool, but it did
enough to allow me to swap my torque wrench onto the socket and get
the nut to turn. Hoorah!! I finished the job this morning and I'm
back on the road. Good thing, because the '63 P5's brakes just went
south. I suspect the master failed, because the fluid drained and is
nowhere to be seen, and when I started the car, a huge plume of white
smoke poured out. My guess is that the fluid has been sucked into the
head through the vacuum line. Does this sound right to you?
Time for another rebuild....
