OK I can not get this thing off. Yes I know it is a reverse thread.

This is what I tried so far.

-I took the spark plug out, and inserted a nylon rope to stop the piston.

-I put the bike on its side, and stood on the rotor, and the ratchet

-My roomate placed a pipe through the ratchet, and used all his strength to try to unscrew it (in the direction the wheels roll)

- it will not turn, and the square hole is starting to strip (slightly)

Is the square drive wrench only available with the super expensive motobecane tool set? What can I do? I need to install a new condensor
