Use a 1/4"drive deep well socket w ratchet or a hollow shaft socket handle . A lot of the socket handles made have a solid shaft . But the better ones have a hollow shaft for jobs like you have . HTH ! God nbless , Ken

Ken I have a question for you. Are you talking about the gauge in the dash??? That is the only thing that a 1/4 socket would work on this temperature gauge.

mjccnc is having an issue getting the brass fitting to seal in the cylinder head. That takes a flare wrench or crow foot flare socket. NO way no how would a 1/4 socket of any kind, help seal the brass in the head.

HOW the heck is he gonna get the socket, not to mention the hollow ratchet, to pass over the 2"+ gauge, to get to the other end where the nut is as it is a sealed capillary tube unit???

Have you not heard of or used a universal joint on a socket ? But I guess I forgot to mention that he may need to use a 1/4" universal joint on the socket .I managed the same installation with some patience . God bless, Ken
