    Well because it is f-in huge i guess. I can easily find it online the problem is that I want it this weekend because my engine is in pieces.

    Went to sears, No. Snap on, $50 and a week. Harbor freight, they only have it online. Anyway I decides that I could buy a 1 13/16 socket 3/4 drive from sears. The only problem is that I have to drive an hour and a half to get to the sears that has it.

    Anyway, rant rant rant. I will pick it up tomorrow if everything works out.

    Where did all of you guys buy your 46mm sockets? are they 1/2 drive?

    Dave,

    beacuse of this thread I went down to the garage and looked....yes my 1 13/16 socket from Sears is 3/4 inch and it got me thinking...I must have used it at my buddies because I don't have a 1/2 to 3/4 adaptor...guess I should get on ebay and try to find one cheap...Thanks and good luck tommorow at Sears...

    Whichever huge size I've got, I got it on the shelf at the small Sears in Fort Collins, and it's a 1/2-inch drive.
