    I'm not sure what size it takes, but let me tell you that I needed 1 5/16" thin wall socket to remove the output yoke on my NP205. Every parts store in town had the socket, but not a thinw all. Ended up having to grind the ears off the yoke to get a thick-wall (like an impact socket) on. That was OK since I was upgrading to a 1350 yoke and my 1310 yoke was slightly hashed from a driveshaft failure.

    You might have the same problem with the socket being too big around to fit in the yoke, esp. if it's a 1/2ton (1310) yoke on your 10-bolt. I wish you luck in advance, because I never could find a thin-wall in 1 5/16"...

    Dude, grind a socket if that's the case. Sears may even take it back if you break it.

    I bought a Sears socket, but I don;t think they'd take it back if I ground off the outside.
    Like I said, I didn;t need the hashed 1310 yoke anyway - would have needed a new 1310 yoke if I wasn;t upgrading.
    Not even the Snap-On truck had one.

    I believe the pinion nut is 1 1/8"... I may be wrong, it has been a few months since we did this.

    HTH!!!!

    I believe it's 1-1/8, but measure flat to flat, and you'll know for sure.

    Take back as a return (after grinding)? Definitely not
    Take back after you break it? Sometimes. Depends on how cool the sales guy is.
