I am fairly certain that it is 1 5/16".  Now, the part that I am certain 
about is that most standard sockets of that size are too wide to get into the 
hub, having gone through two regular sockets before learning exactly what to 
get.  Hint--not Craftsman.
I had to order an SK #40142 1/2in drive socket from an on-line tool company.  
I doubt you'll find that at a thrift shop.
The bummer for me is that after all that effort to get the right socket the 
damn nut was frozen on to the axel and I had to seek professional help.  I 
hate when that happens.
