I'm pulling apart a '71 Commando lower end and find that I don't have socket that is a good fit for the camshaft nut. My 5/8 BS seems a little sloppy and a 1" American is too tight.

Any one know? The camshaft nut shows no signs of damage or rounded corners.

Thanks,
Ed

Should be 5/8 BS - 9/16 W, don't know why yours is sloppy,
Thanks Acadian. I thought it was 9/16 W-5/8 BS. I guess my socket is worn. I'll get another from British fasteners.

This spurs me to start another thread.
