Spanner socket for ZF transmission

I'm looking for a speciality socket to torque down a retainer nut that goes on the output shaft of a ZF Hurth transmission.

I've made one as references in this thread http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...rchid=12051754
but it broke after about 20 ft/lbs and 89 is recommended.

I've checked all the stores here but being in Hawaii hurts. Does anyone e have one that they could ship me? I'd pay for all shipping and get it back ASAP.

Have you considered calling a dealer on the west coast to see if you could potentially rent this tool from them? Just an idea.

It's around 1 1/2 inches. I have the exact measurements at home but it's not a usual size for most spanner sockets.

if you have the diameter of the socket then I would go to my local big box and get the socket or a piece of pipe of the same diameter and make my own with a dremel, hacksaw and file or a grinder and make my own...

that looks similar to some 4wheel drive spanner sockets may have luck finding one for like a ford front end...

I borrowed one from my dealer, and they had a hacked socket with some bar stock tack-welded on the outside..... but it worked!

If you can weld or know someone who can this seems like the quickest/easiest route.
Use a smaller diameter socket with short pieces of bar stock on the outside sticking past the end of the socket.

The retaining nut is a nyloc and should be replaced. You can buy the nut cheap and use it as a template to make your own socket.

Going to try and cut this craftsman socket to work. I hope I have enough Dremel blades.

That may or may not take the torque.

Go to Harbor Freight and buy a hardened impact socket for an impact wrench.
