Hi all:

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.
