Crank Nut Socket
« on: December 25, 2013, 12:46:57 AM »
Just wanted to let you guys know what I found this weekend by total accident.  Anyone with an older Redditch Iron Barrel knows that finding a socket to fit the gigantic crank/stator nut can be a bit of chore.  The general consensus is that one needs to go to Harbor Freight, buy the industrial sized 3/4" socket set for tractors at $80 + tax, and now you own an entire set of unneeded giant sockets just for that one 2 1/16" socket.

Have no fear!  I've found the answer AND the source!

NAPA has a nice selection of over-sized sockets and wrenches, and they happen to have a 2 1/16" socket for $21.  So now everyone knows where to get this behemoth of a socket.  :)

There are also adapters that allow a 1/2 inch drive wrench to power these 3/4 inch drive sockets available.

That there is.  The NAPA I went to happen to be out of stock of the adapters when I was there unfortunately.
