Funny sized spindle nut?
Hey, i have a 86 ranger with manual hubs. Trying to get in to the front wheel bearings. I know I need a spindle nut socket (I think that is what it is called) to do the job, but the one I was told to get absolutely does not fit. I think its 2 3/8" dia. Size wise the socket fits just a litttle too big around the OUTSIDE of the nut. to remove i would probably need a socket around 1/2" smaller (very rough guesstimate). It is possible the front axle was a junkyard replacement at one point but itis still the standard ford two piece.
I am wondering if any of the ford guru's on here has run into something like this, or have any advice/input?
By the way this is my first post here, nice to meet you all :)
