    Anyone know what size socket to remove the pinion nut on a D60 front?

    Also, same question for the rear output of my 205.

    I'm thinking it's in the 1 5/16-1 3/8 range

    jek, if you could do that just to double check, i've got to go on a 25 mile round trip to buy the socket since mine stop at 1 1/4", it'd be appreciated.

    I'm thinking 1 5/16 is correct as well

    Got calipers? Put a caliper on it, or make do with a pair of needle nose vice or something. Adjust till it touches, pull it off, and measure. Should easily be able to get within +/- 1/32 which would be close enough.

    Has to be thin wall 1 5/16" as well. I had a hell of time finding one at the time I needed it to get my pinion off my front 60. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I got a generic 3/4" drive chrome 12 point 1 5/16" socket and it worked fine.

    Damn the Sears here, NO INDIVIDUAL SOCKETS!!!!!! What kinda crap is that???

    Same thing I used for mine.

    BTW, Matt, do you still need that D60 1310 yoke? If so, I've still got it for you...
