Add at least another foot to your handle............until your body developes some muscles . Be glad, they're not stud piloted, otherwise known as BUDD wheels .

At the angle of your picture, I thought you had Dayton Wheels................but you did have Budd stud piloted .

It would appear that you have stud pilot Budd wheels on your International which means inner and outer nuts in both right and left hand thread. Given the truck looks like it's been sitting for sometime I would get a commercial tire service company if not to far away to come out and remove all the wheels. Then you can clean up all the nuts and studs, replace any that are in need of junking then reassemble yourself. The service call could quite likely be less than aquiring some costly tools that you may not have or ever need again. With your admitted lack of knowledge it may very well be worth going this route and would be a learning experience especially if one or more of these inner and outer nuts pile up against each other while removing and send you over the brink.

For governments who try to tax themselves into prosperity is like standing in a bucket and trying to lift themselves up by the handle.

Thanks. I have thought about this idea of paying a pro to undo them. I did go on YouTube and saw a Torque Converter. I ordered one on line $60. I think it may do the trick. If not, I will call in the pros. Thanks so much for responding to my posts. Eric

By the way, what's the meaning behind 2 Books?
In a nutshell I always ran hard....no hanging around truck stops, never late and told all I hauled for that if my wheels were no going to turn then my truck better be parked in my driveway. The guys I knew and worked with always wondered how I was always ahead of the pack...hence I was given the nickname "Two-Books" as in log books.

That's very cool. It's about business and keeping it real. I spent 23 years working in the Federal Pen as a GED school teacher. I had to keep it real, too. Thanks for sharing, and for all your advice. By the way. I bought a torque multiplier, on the 3rd budd nut, the wrench broke. Was made in China. I ordered another one US made from Home Depot. It, the China multiplier, worked great till the 3rd nut. Thanks, Two-Books.

Dish------- Verify you have left hand studs on left side, and right hand threads on right side . Hubs have been switched more than once .

I would strongly suggest an air impact wrench. Get a pro out to loosen them all, as TwoBooks suggests, or buy a good impact wrench --assuming you have a good supply of compressed air. Years ago my neighbor came over to ask help with some lugs on his tractor, after he broke one off using a big bar. I took my impact wrench over and got them all off without breaking one. The impact wrench "hammers" them loose.

Life  is like a roll of toilet paper the closer  you get to the end, the faster it goes!  Enjoy each day.
