You guys are talking about 2 different sockets. The 2-1/4" is for the rear pivot nut, the wedge bolts are 5/8 bolts and use a 15/16" socket.

I made the 2-1/4" socket, now if I can just find it.

Thats when we are going to see if it fits in the area between my hitch and wheel well in the bed. Hope to save you a trip. Don't have much area in that short bed...PS: I think OC has a socket can't remember but he lent his to the engineers in Goshen, when they worked on mine to.
Glenn, they had the socket, but didn't have a torque wrench so I loaned them mine.

I knew you lent them something, Didn't mean to misquote it's been years ago. I remember buying one at Napa after and like I said my trailer is at the Dr. so I can't look at what I bought. I remember that I loosened that nut and tried to drop that revolution down, I couldn't do it by myself. If I remember right I just tightened it back and re torqued it to the specks they recommended and back it off a little to install the cotter pin. My new one still can not be turned by hand which is fine with me, I also think it makes hooking up easier. It really has nothing to do with the operation of the pivot when attached to the truck hitch. I just have to make sure I'm at the same angle when I re hook, being I can't still turn it by hand.
