The bearing retainer nuts are two and three sixteenths of an inch.
Not sure where you are but I just went to my local tool place and ordered that size socket. Octagonal.
You are aware that the RHS nuts are RHT and those on the LHS are LHT?

I am trying to replace a leaky wheel bearing seal in my "65 BJ8. The nut that locks the hub on is an 8 sided nut that I measured to be 2.1825"
across the flats. Where do you get a socket to remove that nut. My original Healey workshop manual shows a special service tool in the back for that purpose, but I don't have that.
Any other way of removing that nut? according to the Moss catalog it should be a left hand thread in the left side of the car where I am working.
Thanks for any collective wisdom.
