    Friends,

    Does anyone have a 46mm socket that they are willing to loan? I need to remove the crankshaft pulley nut on my 77 FJ40, and can't find a local source for the socket. (I'd also rather not buy another rarely-used tool.) I've checked with the UC members here in Charleston, but to no avail. Can anyone upstate help?

    Keith I don't have one. Maybe someone will step up. I'll be in Charleston in 2 weeks. If someone steps up maybe I can deliver it.

    Doesnt your crankshaft nut have those 2 hooked barbs on it so that you can use a bar instead of a socket?

    I think that would tighten it.

    I think those hooks are for hand cranking the engine like an
    old T model. :eek:

    yeah, that's right...so using the t-bar would tighten the nut, not loosen it

    Thanks to 72Cruiser (Jonathan)! This is one of the great things about cruiser addicts, everyone is just so darned friendly.

    Hopefully now I can get the timing cover off and find the source of this knock that's been driving me nuts.
