    3/8" Drive ratchet. If it is too tight use a 1/2"breaker bar with a 1/2" to 3/8" adapter.

    i welded a 3/8" (I think) bolt into the hole and now i can turn it with a ratchet and a 9/16s socket, thats cause it was really tight and kinda stripped out. I was going to replace it but its a lot easier with a hex head bolt so i left it

    just a bare ratchet and extension, no socket or anything. perfect fit.
