[xj-s] Socket size for lug nuts AND front crank pulley nut?

Hello,
I am buying some impact sockets this weekend and want to be
certain the set has the proper sizes I am going to need for wheel
lugs, brake caliper/rotor and front crank pulley nut. Any ideas?
Thanks,

You might wanna buy the front crank pulley socket separately. It’s a
great big thing. Buying a set that includes it would probably be a
great big set, intended for truck work or whatnot, and big bucks.
Better to buy a regular size set plus one big socket for that crank
pulley nut.

BTW, I don’t even own an impact set. I just use my normal sockets
with my impact wrench. I know there’s a risk of cracking them since
they are harder than impact sockets, but I haven’t broken one yet.
And if I did, they’ve got a lifetime warranty!

can’t you take a normal set of sockets and try them until
one fits? The crank nut might be hard, but the wheels are easy.–

I do have a basic set of impact sockets. I fiond that they are six
sided and good for stubborn bolts that take lots of toque to break
loose, one way or another by impact or by a big cheater bar. They
are not as likely to round off the heads of the stubborn ones.

I have an electric and an air impact. I like them a lot.

Some time ago, I had to drive some good size lags to secure a post
and the weatherhead on the house. The electric one drove those big
lags right on in, no sweat.

And many years ago, the kid that did our lawn had a flat on his
tired Toyota pickup. He couldn’t get the spare loose. It is a
terrible mount under the bed. Whirrr, gone. The wheel lugs were
also apparently, gorilla installed. The electric couldn’t hand;le
them, but the air made short work. I introduced him to a torque
wrench and anti-seize. Good kid. Hard worker. I taught him as much
as I could about s lot of things.

No one said what size the crankshaft damper nut is, I’d like
to know as well if someone knows.
Thanks

Hi Ian,

The crankshaft damper bolt is 1-5/16" or ~ 33mm. If you will indicate
where you are located, perhaps someone can help you locate a supplier
for a rebuilt damper for your 90 V12 Before assuming the damper is the
cause of the “screech,” you should put a line of white paint on the
damper from front to rear, and see if that misaligns after a screech.

Hi George
Thanks for the info. I have done the paint job and it is the
damper causing the noise. Where I am is complicated, I’m in
France but my car is in Vanuatu, neear Fiji. I’ll be back
there later in the year, via a short stay in New York and
then San Francisco so I could pick up the part in either
place. Failing that, I’d mail order it to be sent to a
friend in AZ who would send it to me at some stage.
