    No, A tube over a ratchet will strip and kill your ratchet...the forces required to both undo the crank bolt and then do it up again ,will kill it! A decent breaker bar is worth its weight in gold...esp. for the head bolts too...

    Your thinking of a cheater bar!

    What's everyone's thoughts on a 30" (760mm) breaker bar? Long enough to pull down the head bolts and crank pulley nut?

    EDIT
    Or, should I be looking for one a metre long? Not many with a 1/2" drive

    2 ft bar is all you need for head bolts , decent 1/2 inch batter gun does crank bolt or a tube on the 2ft bar

    30" bar not big enough for the crank bolt. Should I buy a metre one instead of looking for a tube?

    You're right, the jump in price is big.
    I'll look up 'battery gun'.
