**** Yup.
On the other hand, I made a simple "2079" using a pipe and two breaker 
bars. See my other post on that.
And, it doubles as an extension for removing the bolt if you dont have 
an impact wrench.

**** Yah! I used my impact wrench to remove the bolt. It was out in a 
flash and the engine didnt turn.
Oh yes, I took off the car front end, otherwise you have no access for 
the impact wrench.
But, for putting the bolt back in . .well . .what the hell . . I now 
have my el-cheapo,tripler version of tool 2079. Might as well use that.
