I didn't realize how hard it was to find the 18mm allen wrench for the front axle ..... Wow I looked everywhere even a machine shop supply company .. Nobody had one ...NOBODY !!!! I just happened to mention this to a friend and he said he had one that he "borrowed" from a shop he used to work at .... Thank-god .... I took it home and painted it bright orange so I won't lose it .. I'm thinkin of getting it gold plated .... LOL Good luck if you guys need one ... [/emoticons/emotion-5.gif]

All you need to do is get the closest standard size bolt and 2 standard nuts, lock the 2 nuts together on the bolt and you have yourself a front axle remover tool for a couple of bucks$$....easy enough.

The wrong end of a 3/4" cold chisel will work, some spark plug sockets have a 3/4 hex at the top. If Sears is near by, they will have a 3/4" allen wrench. your choice.

The ratchet end of a 5/8" spark plug socket works like a charm. They have a 3/4" hex on the end so you can use a open end or box wrench.

Maybe that's because it is 19mm. [/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]

I was wondering if anyone was going to catch that, I flip the plug socket but have a Snap-on allen socket @ work
