I installed an ASR brake on my 17 for an Omega also. Removing the old brake was easy with two wrenches and required no vise. Clean threads thoroughly. I used a KBA ring and shims to hand tighten the ASR brake to about 10 o'clock. Put the barrel in a vise, sandwiched between two blocks of wood (with grooves drilled in) and rosin (to keep from slipping). Applied Rockset. Torqued to 20 in-lb and twelve o'clock. Let cure overnight and done.
