Anyone know what size socket I need to remove the nut on the end of the hub? And what size wrench for the axle nut with the set screws in it? Need to get the right tools to get this axle out.
1 1/8" if my memory serves correctlyAnyone know what size socket I need to remove the nut on the end of the hub?
A very big one. I used a 24" CrescentAnd what size wrench for the axle nut with the set screws in it? Need to get the right tools to get this axle out.
correct. the stock axle wheel hub nut is 24mm.I just checked the nut size with some calipers and it looks like the castle nut is a 24mm. The axle nut i'll just use a big crescent. Thanks man.
I held a 1/2" breaker bar in one hand on the nut and used a dead blow hammer to loosen mine. Took a while but it worked.Yeah I got the axle nut off with a 24" crescent. I can't get that damn castle nut off to save my life. I'm going to go pick up an impact. That should zip it off hopefully.
I would have to say installing the front end and having to deal with Caster - Camber / Toe-In - Toe-out was far worse.I tried the breaker bar and the dead blow hammer but no luck. The impact made quick work of it though. Of all the work i've done on the raptor I think putting on the new swing arm was the biggest pain in the ass.
