    Yeah I guess I could:banghead:
     
  2. I take it the nut is on the inside of the frame, and that is the bolt head on the outside, see there is a socket type ring on outside that will stop the bold turning, and it looks as if it is half off, so cut it off and weld a temp bar to the bolt head, use the cut off bolt keeper to fit the nut, weld something to it like and old socket, use to undo the ni loch nut, once out clean up the face where bolt head keeper sits, replace the bolt and tighten the nut up as needed, then cut off welded bit of metal on bolt head, tidy up with grinder and then cut old socket off bolt head keeper and refit keeper over bolt head and weld back on

    Think its might be an 1 1/2" dia bolt? The markings on the head of the bolt would indicate imperial? AL and S

    so that makes it a 2 1/4 socket according to this chart?

    Nobody in their right mind would know that!
    I dispute your post and cannot believe that such a measurement has ever existed. Nobody has ever made a socket of that size, not even the Welsh.

    A 6 point socket this big even a mm too slack is very unlikely to slip ,so not much need for the 64ths, or 32nds , even for us precision engineering Welsh!

    them nuts are nice and easy to get too! mines a 5ft 10" grab and matbro brackets so you can only get to the nut from the inside of the grab.

    Are there no depths of skullduggery to which you will plunge to firmly assert your undisputed mastery of metric to imperial measurements?

    I have met some utterly ruthless people in my life, but none so devious and so unscrupulously underhanded as yourself Lincs Lass.

    Have you ever considered a career in the civil service, or even the Welsh Assembly?

    Are you sure there's enough room for the socket to sleeve over that nut impact socket would have a thick wall ?

    If you were tight could you fabricate one onto an old socket ..............
    Just a suggestion ...........

    As a guess, imperial if its fractions of a millimeter

    Good luck ringing strimech, i have never met a firm with such bad back up or customer service. I used to rave about their buckets until i was passed from pillar to post with their non existent promises and shoddy service when buying a new bucket from them.

    Most self respecting farmers I know would have knocked it around with a chisel.
