Just wondering if anyone knows of a place to buy a 2 1/2 inch deep
socket for the crankshaft nut. There
are studs sticking out of the pulley
so you can't get a crescent wrench on the

I need to pull the crankshaft pulley
off my old engine and put it onto my
new one. The new engine is from an MD
which doesn't have the hydraulic pump
mounted in the front.

Thanks for any info,

If nothing else, you can make any length socket you need by cutting one of appropriate size(only shorter) into two peices, the part that goes on the socket and the part that goes on the nut. Take a piece of pipe with an ID the same as the sockets OD and weld the socket parts to the pipe.

Hmm, maybe you misunderstood. The socket must
be 2 1/2 in diamter and 3 inches deep. It is
a really big nut and the crankshaft sticks out
beyond it by like 2 3/4 inches. I have
called around a bit and can't get one like that.

I guess I will try the Case dealer tomorrow,
I think they sell tools. Probably cost a
fortune from them though.

Save your money. A socket you want is going to cost a fortune. Use a hammer and chisel to drive it loose. Once its broken loose it'll turn easier.
