rear axle nut size
« on: December 19, 2014, 06:55:23 AM »
On my 5C, the nut that holds the wheel bearing onto the rear axle is 4". Yesterday, I was picking up my new slack adjusters at Fleet Brake in Calgary (finally got in), and wanted to pick up a socket for that nut (would be better than a chisel and hammer). The parts guy asked me 6 point or 8 point? I don't remember, and I won't be back home to see the bus until next week. Does anybody remember? TIA.

It's actually Owatonna. Clifford's big fingers strike again! :)

1914 is the part number:
