    Look for a 54mm for OTC tool(they do the toyota SST's) most good parts stores can get these, about $20. Also Snap On/Bluepoint, $16 and very nice, needs a 3/4-1/2 adapter.

    I believe a 2 1/8" will work if you cant find the metric - it's definitely worth having the socket (ask me how I know :().

    Sears has them. That will help you tonight. IIRC, it is 54mm. There was a post here about three weeks ago on this exact topic. But I cannot seem to find it in the search.

    So, I notice that SOR sells different hub sockets for before and after 9/75. Anyone know the difference?

    Drum brake and disc brake spindle nuts...thought that drum brake was 46mm, just like the crank nut..but I do not have either in front of me right now...

    Sor socket is cheap, thin, and will deform in the event that you have to put alot of load on it..will work a few times, not something to 'invest' in, as tooling is..

    Snap on 54 mm hub socket, for the disck brake spindle nuts, sold by Marlin, and many others, only 25.00us.

    I have a few, and all work great.

    Good luck!

    -Steve

    For completeness sake and future reference, I'm going to add here that the drum brake hub nut is 50 mm.

    For completeness sake and future reference, I'm going to add here that 54mm is equal to 2.126 inches, or a smidgeon more than 2 1/8", because I want to learn to talk like Dave talks.
