Dennis,I'm not sure how a standard hex or 12 point socket would work on the octagonal nut.  I've seen a few posts where they had modified a standard socket by welding on a plate with an octagonal cutout, but I don't have a welder.  I was hoping to source something that works right out of the box.  I'm checking with local club members to see if anyone has one to loan.John

You’ll find a 2 3/16” socket will work, however, I had trouble with the radius on the socket edge engaging the very thin nut. I took the socket to a machine shop and had the radius edge removed and it worked very well. I would be happy
 to loan you this now very specialized socket. Let me know.
