Making a Tool to Remove the Front Axle
The front wheel axle requires the use of a 19mm (3/4") allen head wrench or socket. Since most people don't have a 19mm allen head laying around, a rather ingenious member of the forum came up with this solution:
- 3/8" Socket extension
- 3/8" Spark plug socket
Insert the socket extension through the backwards spark plug socket, resulting in the correct size wrench. Please see the attached pictures.
Also, thanks to 7th Son:
Use of a 1/2" coupler nut and a 3/4" or 19mm socket to drive it is also a very good, inexpensive alternative.
