Hi guys, I've searched and searched and I can't find anywhere that sells the SST for the stake nut that goes on top of the sector shaft.
What has everyone else done to loosen and tighten this?

I've found this pic (off here) but not sure if the measurements are correct, if so, I could make something out of a coupler nut - what do you reckon ?

There’s a thread from @Box Rocket where he rebuilds a box and makes a tool from a socket and I think a 14mm nut. Dunno about the actual tool part number though.
Here's the post from my steering box rebuild thread.

Thanks. Read that one too. So does anyone know if there is an actual SST for this?

how tight did you install the stake nut?

I found an old 14mm hex nut that was a bit longer. Drilled out out and it works well.
As the adjusting screw needs to swivel around I wouldnt be inclined to tighten it down or you won't be able to turn the adjusting screw. So I'll fit it lightly and put some loctite on it.

Hope this helps someone:
