Rear axle nut - 46mm or 1-13/16" 1 -13/16" socket available from most NAPA stores by itself for about $12 (you also need a 3/4" drive adaptor)

Front axel hex - 22mm or 7/8" 7/8" hex is normally the hex on the back of a 13/16" sparkplug socket - like the Craftsman #43321. Put this on a 3/8" drive extension bar BACKWARDS and you have a 22mm hex drive!

I made one using an old rounded out socket, M16 bolt with 24mm hex head, 15000€ welding machine and 1 million € horizontal milling centre.

This thread just payed for itself in new tools. Picked up a screw and BillT is now my new Idol. :wrench:
