Hi all -

I'm in the process of disassembling a 70 tilt column, and need to remove one of the nuts on the steering shaft. It looks to be 1 1/8" in size, and the shop manual calls for a special thin-wall socket to remove it. There is no access for an open-end wrench. Has anyone had to remove this nut, and if so, what tool did you use? Thanks!

Rainer,

I had to remove that nut when I rebuilt my tilt. I bought a deep 1 1/8 impact socket and used the grinder on the outside until the wall was thin enough to remove the nut.

The manual calls for a special socket, what is the J number? Some of those J-tools are still available from Kent Moore.

Good Luck,
Jim Endrud
