Axle Nut??

Anyone know where to get a castellated nut of the end of the 914 axle? Or even the size so that I can call around for one? I messed one up banging on it to get the axle out while doing my 5 lug conversion today.
I would say that changing the rear hubs, bearings, rotors, calipers trailing arms and bushings was more difficult than putting the V8 in my car.
Thanks

The factory manual says the "castle nut on universal shaft" has "M 20 x 1.5" threads. What sized socket did you use? I found a "30mm - 6Pts. - Regular Depth" socket at sears.ca that I'm going to try. You might find some more useful information in this thread.

Thanks. I used a 30mm socket and a big heavy hammer.
I bought the scoket at a used tool store for $2

If you're looking for the nut, we should be able to supply it. I kinda doubt it's in the catalog (never hurts to look, I guess), but if you call up the friendly sales staff at 888-280-7799 they ought to be able to hook you up.

If we can't get it new, your best bet is likely to get a used one.

A 6 foot pipe on the socket wrench makes it feel like it is on with 20 ft. lbs. instead of 220. Good Luck

Yup, have the car on the ground, in gear with little air in the tire.. Use a 4 foot piece of pipe from Home Depot on a ratchet with a 30mm socket. Pops right off...

Freeze the new bearings overnight. Mine just slipped in after also heating up the trailing arms with a mapp gas torch

I buggered up the original nut on side.
Found a suitable replacement at a Motorcycle shop for ~$3.00

Autozone sells castellated nuts for cheap. If memory serves me correctly, I got one for a Mitsubishi. Just take the old one with you (mine was broken in half after drilling, chiseling, cussing...) and they'l match it up.
