I use one with a 3/4" drive. Half inch drive is a bit small for this amount of 
torque. You'll also need some way to hold the AT drive plate while you torque 
the gland nut. The trick of stuffing the #1 or #3 cylinder full of rope via the 
spark plug hole is a good way to do this. Try to use enough rope to stop the 
piston halfway up.
