You may need to machine down the hex end of the socket if it has recessed flats. Otherwise, you'll only get partial engagement of the socket flats on the comparatively thin nut. </TD></TR></TABLE>
Yet another pearl of wisdom from Shazaam that is easily overlooked. The bigger the socket, the larger the radius on the end of the socket, and with a very thin nut you will really increase the amount of contact you get if you face off that big radius.
Now who do I know that has a surface grinder ........
(this will certainly help if that mother scratchin nut is locked up on there like mine was once.)
