pinion nut size

I just snapped the yoke on the rear diff. and I'm stuck at work. Does anyone know what size the nut is as it looks like I'll have to run out and buy one.
10.25 sterling ltd slip
thanks

Re: pinion nut size

1-1/8" if i remember right. it has been a while. either that or 1-1/16".

you have to get the thin walled socket though, the thicker ones wont fit b/c the nut and the hole of the yoke

Re: pinion nut size

Why do you need a new nut? If the yoke broke, the nut should be able to still be used. I used a 1 1/16" I think and my socket was not a thin wall and it worked just fine. You might need a breaker bar with a cheater if it has been on there from the factory. It's tight!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

They way I understood it he was going to buy a new yoke and need the nut size so he could get the right size wrench to r and r the yoke.

Re: pinion nut size

It was 1 1/8th. It was pretty tuff going on. Went on a bit easier after warming it up and smacking it with the the 5lb sledge. Of course there was a piece of wood between the sledge and the yoke. I'm finding the driveline on this truck is leaving much to be desired.
So far I've replaced both yokes, rebuilt the 5spd, replaced all the ujoints everywhere some a few times and now the front driveshft has developed considerable slop in the slip joint section.
I hope at least thats the last time I drop a shaft in the middle of an intersection with an on coming gravel truck lined up to the drivers door.
thanks
