BTW the hub nut socket that Mike is referring to is available from Moss.  <http://www.mossmotors.com/Shop/ViewProducts.aspx?PlateIndexID=38160> http://www.mossmotors.com/Shop/ViewProducts.aspx?PlateIndexID=38160


It is listed for a MG but that is the one that he used.

Thanks to everyone on the list for their advice and encouragement with getting the hub nuts off the diff.  I got them off tonight using the hub nut tube socket from John Sims. (Thanks John). One of the nuts was partially off and it was easy work to get it off the rest of the way.  The other nut was a different story.  I thought I was going to have to get the torch out to loosen it up.  Turns out a 24 inch breaker bar with half of my jack handle tubing as a cheater extension worked.  I thought I would break the breaker bar just before there was a loud crack when the nut let go.  After that, it was easy to turn it off the rest of the way by hand.  Now to get the hubs off.  Thanks everyone!
