Hey Gang,

Some time ago I asked the size of the thin-wall socket
needed to remove the axle nut on the MGB's rear axle. 
I believe that the size is 1-5/8" but I need to verify
that before buying a socket.  Is that size correct?  I
need to remove the hub to replace the oil seal (then
rebuild the brakes).

Second question; anyone know of a source for these
sockets?  I have looked in all the usual places but I
have not found the 1-5/8" size.

All advice is appreciated.
