Tool Sizes for Specific Jobs


Recommended Posts


Was thinking it would be good to compile a list of tool sizes for specific jobs.

So here goes:-

Hub Nuts - 52mm Socket

R380 Filler Plug - T55 Torx

R380 Drain Plug - 32mm Spanner

LT77 Drain Plug - 24mm Socket

LT230 Transfer Box Drain Plug - 17mm Socket

Good thread!

Radius arm to chassis nuts = 30mm socket

Radius arm to axle nuts = 24mm socket / spanners

I hope I've got those right!! I'm pretty sure that's what they were on my defender. Now I'm wondering whether that's a universal size for all coiler LRs!??!

swivel to axle bolts on a late coiler, the ones with the 14mm(9/16) double hex bolts.

Another sugestion would be 14 mm double hex socket for later brake discs.

And a really good quality (cos they round off easy) 13mm double hex socket for later brake callipers.

110 CSW with self levelling unit.

The A-frame ball joint nut is tucked away in the casting with very little clearance. After trying 3 different sockets, I found a Tengtools bi-hex 30mm socket fits. No reference number I'm afraid, but it is matt silver (not shiny chrome) and quite stocky!
