2 1/16" (52mm) Crank Nut Socket
« on: December 25, 2013, 12:56:33 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.  :)

One thing I've learned from working on bikes and motorcycles is that if it's an important part, and it rotates, the threads will be opposite of the rotating direction so it tightens itself as it spins.  I thought everyone knew that.     ;D  ;)

The crank nut is right handed threads.
