If you are only wanting to remove the clutch nut then try Harbor freight and buy the largest adjustable (Cresent Wrench) wrench they sell. It is easier to remove that nut with a wrench than a socket. This nut is not especially user friendly to remove, but in my opinion easier with the wrench.

Besides when someone approaches you to show you how to do it with a socket, you can beat them to a pulp with the wrench -- it is THAT frustrating to get broken free unless you watch the HOW TO video on Youtube....

Actually, you don't really have to hit anyone with the wrench, but DARNED wouldn't ya just love it if people would be more help with their hands than their mouth...LOL

not the 24mm nut to remove the whole assembly the large nut to remove the clutch from the moveable pulleys in order to change the torque spring.

Yeah, he wanted to replace the spring, did he. Can't do it without removing big nut, so i guessed it's what he was referring to.

Saw a post on here the other day. Guy used a bog crescent and put it on the nut.

Then held the whole assmebly in his hands and bounced the end of the crescent wrench on the floor (concrete) and nut was loose immediately. Sort of like using an impact wrench. :) I thought his was 48mm nut.

Thanks for the info guys, I just wanted to get the socket ahead of time so I didn't have to stop working in the middle of a project. SAFE SCOOTIN Jay

Bought a 55mm socket with 1/2 inch drive
off Ebay...used on the front axle nut on
some 4 wheel-drive SUVs...
carefully watch the mm size listing in the
Ebay postings...many sizes available.
