    Default 42mm socket.

    Hi all, can anyone advise where I might purchase a 42 mm socket preferable 1/2 inch drive. Need it to remove locknut from front of cooling fan on a GS 1220, or is there a special tool to be used. Many thanx in advance.

    Never, never lend out your tools....
    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    It's one of those tools you'll probably use twice in your lifetime Can you remember ever using a 42mm socket ?? Only GS owners have probably ever used a 42 and 44mm socket... It wouldn't leave until I had a deposit equal to it's replacement cost either way

    You might find it easier to locate a 1", 11/16 AF socket. This is what I use on the crank nut of my GS. You will need the 3/4" drive to 1/2" drive adapter.

    Go to Coates hire and hire the socket you need and 3/4" adapter, ratchet or 'T' bar for the day. It will only cost you a few bucks, especially if you know the guys in your local depot. Do it Saturday morning return it on Monday and you get Sunday for $0.

    I have a spare 42mm socket and am willing to sell it to you. I bought it as a single socket, then I bought a complete set which included a 42mm socket. It is Stanley brand, probably made in Taiwan. It is well finished. It has never been used but has a little surface rust on the bottom face. It is 3/4" drive. You cannot get a 42mm socket in 1/2" drive. I do have a spare 1/2" to 3/4" inch adapter that I am willing to sell with it, but both my adapters of that size are currently in the custody of other Aussiefroggers, along with some other 3/4" sockets. (Did someone say something about not lending tools?) I am not sure what brand it is, but it is well finished and I think it was made in Taiwan. Anyway, it will do your job just fine. All I have to do is get it back from its current custodian! (He is usually very prompt at sending stuff.)

    If you are interested, PM me.
