    Get a 4-pin symetrical. The nut is a 6 pin off-centered, but with the 4-pin you can line then up with no problem. I got one for $12.50 form a 4x4 shop up here in Ft. Collins. Napa wanted $45.99 for the same part.

    If you can't find it at your local parts store maybe the dealer can get it for you.

    I have three different sockets. One to fit the D44, one for the D60, and one for the 14FF. I got all three from Snap-On Tools and paid like $35.00 for each socket. Talk about "taking it up the butt, dry" when you only pay for the name!!! [​IMG]

    I got a Lisle brand from Pep Boys. I think Northern Auto Parts sells em cheaper though, plus it's mail order (I think their website is their name) so no running around.

    I got both of mine from Autozone for $10. Try calling a different Autozone. They probably had one but the moron behind the counter probably thought you were talking about a oil filter and looking for it under the windshield wiper section for a 69 VW.[​IMG]
