In the Book, Craig Sawyers reports on a socket he modified to fit
onto the 11/16" hex domed 7/16" head nuts underneath the edge of the
“I ended up getting a friend with a lathe to turn a shoulder on a
standard socket so that it would snug under the tappet block. Worked
a treat. The part around the socket, 0.935” diameter (ie, as
supplied) and 0.7" to the turned shoulder. The turned down part
(where the 3/8" drive fits) is 0.67" diameter and 0.49" long from the
shoulder to the top."
I’d like to provide some illustrations for the web page. Can anyone
provide any of the following?
– a picture of such a socket
– a picture of the difficult-to-get-at nut in question.
– a picture of the socket in place on the nut.
